    Our extremely knowledgeable guide talked us through the founding of Southampton up to modern times. A great way to get introduced to the area She was not afraid to tell the true history ending on high note with the story of William Bell, a Southampton local who tragically lost his life on the Titanic. His heroism was repaid by a man he saved. Take the tour to find out what happened!
