Event description
Join Julian Humphrys for a walk around Southampton's medieval city walls and a visit to the newly-reopened God's House Tower with its new displays and views of historic Southampton. 
God's House Tower is an amalgamation of two buildings: a simple gatehouse, built in the late 13th century; and a massive spur work, an early 15th century addition consisting of a two-storey gallery and a three-storey tower. The building takes its name from the nearby hospital of God's House, founded in 1168 as a refuge for poor travellers.The original gatehouse was built to provide access to the newly constructed quay and remained more or less intact until a major French raid in 1338, after which the defences were reinforced. God's House Tower is a culmination of that work and is one of the earliest forts built specifically to carry cannon.
Depart: 10.30am God's House Tower, Town Quay Road, Southampton, SO14 3AW.
God's House Tower is a 25-minute walk from the central station. For car parking information visit 
Admission to God's House Tower (payable on day to Tower Staff): £5.00.
The Tower cafe (admission free) will be open for refreshments before and after the visit,
