Hidden Histories Trail – the Black History of Southampton

PUBLISHED : October 20, 2022

WORDS : Don John

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.

You will be guided by one of our friendly tour guides, who are all accredited white badge guides supported by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. These walks start and end at God’s House Tower and last around 90 minutes. Comfy shoes are recommended, as well as clothing for all weathers!

The tours cost £5 per person and the proceeds from ticket sales will go towards continuing our work to research, learn and share the diverse history of Southampton in new and creative ways.

*Suitable for ages 16 +


Multiple dates available.

God’s House Tower, Town Quay Road, SO14 2NY
