It is great to see so much of the wall still remains around the city of Southampton. A must see when coming to this city.

A lovely free sightseeing experience for anyone. It's great for when the weather is sunny and hot! Not too far West Quay for a bite to eat and a sit down.

Its great walk around the walls and take in all of the history of the area, there is so much history right in front of you that is quite easy to miss.
