for international students in Southampton and Winchester

Walk and Talk around Southampton City Centre

Cost: Free
Time : 2.15pm to 4pm
Date: Saturday 17 October
Join us for a walk around the city centre and meet other students and local volunteers. We will meet outside the main entrance to the SeaCity Museum, Havelock Road, SO14 7FY.  Mary Reeves from Friends International will be outside the museum to meet you , and we will start our walk in small groups and will be finished by 4pm. If coming from the Highfield Campus, you can catch a unlink bus (U1, U2 or U6) and get off near/outside the civic centre (the white building with the tall clock tower) or by Watts Park.
We will be taking a walk around some of the sites of Southampton City Centre. and our walk will take just over an hour and a half, so we will be finishing by around 4pm.   There will be the chance to talk with other students and local volunteers as we take our stroll around the city.
In order to comply with social distancing, we will be walking in small groups of 4 people (2 volunteers and 2 students)
If you would like to book to come, please email us with your name and mobile number (which we will need for the NHS test and trace record, this data will be held for 21 days ).  Unfortunately, we are not able to offer any refreshments on the walk, but you are welcome to bring your own drink/snack with you, or you may like to try one of the city centre cafes after the walk has finished.

Once you have booked a place, Mary will email you with more details about the exact location to meet, the timings and her mobile number.

Some of our groups will be covering some of the sites on this city centre walk – but different groups may take slightly different routes – but whichever route you are on, there are plenty of buildings and sites of interest, some of them dating back many centuries, such as the historic medieval “Bargate” – since the time of King Henry II, many of the Kings and Queens of England have passed through the Bargate;  and then others more recent, such as buildings and memorials related to the Titanic.
