Southampton is the largest city in the county of Hampshire, on England’s Southern coastline. The city has a rich boating heritage and is one of the major ports connecting Britain to the rest of Europe. It is here where the RMS Titanic originally departed from and today, some of the largest cruise liners leave from Southampton to travel all over the world.
Southampton is a city steeped in history, as can be seen from its wide array of architecture. It was originally a trading port for the Romans who settled here in approximately AD 43 and was a vital gateway to France and the rest of Continental Europe after the Norman Conquest of 1066.
