Hidden Histories Trail

Join us for the Hid­den His­to­ries Trail as our tour guides take you on a jour­ney of dis­cov­ery, shar­ing the diverse his­to­ry of Southampton’s past

From Black privateers to plantation owners, this fascinating tour shines a spotlight onto many lesser known stories of Southampton’s past to better understand the diverse heritage of our City spanning over 400 years.

The Hidden Histories Trails are led by a team of friendly and knowledgable volunteers who are all accredited white badge guides supported by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. They have undergone an intensive training programme as part of Hidden Histories, developing and leading on their own research projects exploring the city’s diverse history, and they can’t wait to share their knowledge with you.

The tour starts and finishes at God’s House Tower and cost £5 per person, with proceeds from ticket sales going towards continuing our work to research, learn and share the diverse history of Southampton in new and creative ways.

The walks last around 90 minutes and comfy shoes are recommended, as well as clothing for all weathers!

Suitable for ages 16 +
