Free Guided Tour Of Southampton

As this is the last free weekend I have before work starts kicking in, I woke up to join the free walking tour in Southampton. It starts from Bar Gate at 10.30 a.m. every Sunday. Apparently, the frequency increases when it is Summer. I stood out from the crowd as I was the only Asian and the youngest. They all thought that I was a student which I happily played along. The weather was so cold that I could not manage to take loads of pictures. Although it looked like it was going to rain, luckily, it did not even a drop. Here is apparently an old market that used to be in front of a church but was later moved because of the smell after Sunday service. This is what remains of it now and is one of those old buildings that is a frequent sight around the city.

The guided tour brings you around to locked rooms in the towers and certain places in the walls. All this exclusive site for free was an opportunity not to be missed. If you are ever spending a weekend over at Southampton, I recommend that you join this tour!!! Cheers, Benny Ong
