On Monday I had a day out to Southampton with my friend Val.   Neither one of us had been to the place before and we hope there would be some interesting sights to see.  
Well we found this place, an interesting memorial which was the church of the sailors

Bargate part of the old town 
And a number of Rhino's


  1. I went to university in Winchester so we used to go to Southampton for nights out and shopping. I don't remember much else of interest there, I think Winchester or Portsmouth is better. ;)

    1. The shopping did look really good and near to the station. But as a trip just to have a look around not a great day out. Never mind it is another place we can tick off as been there, done that.
