Explore Southampton's Rich History by Taxi

August 2020 will be a very special occasion in the calendar for Southampton and America as it marks the 400th Year Celebration of The Pilgrim Fathers who set sail from Southampton to the USA.

At the bottom of the city, you will find a monument proudly standing opposite Southampton's Royal Pier. Built in 1913, it commemorates the sailing of the two ships, The Mayflower and The Speedwell.

There's so much interesting history to explore in Southampton! Why not take a taxi and visit some of our great local attractions such as The Old Walls, Tudor House in Bugle Street and the SeaCity Museum opposite the BBC studios? 

If you fancy venturing further afield, there are many lovely places to visit just a taxi trip away! Winchester, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within an hour's drive.
