On the Titanic Trail there is a walk through the streets where the Titanic crew lived and drank. Many buildings of the period survive today including; the Terminus Station, arguably the oldest railway station in the country; the luxurious South Western Hotel, where first class passengers stayed, including Thomas Andrews, designer of the ship, and Bruce Ismay, chairman of the White Star Line. Stop at the White Star Office and reflect on the families, who waited days for news. Hear the true story of Jack Dawson. See the pub where Titanic stokers had their last drink before sailing. These historic streets still resonate from the loss.
Afterwards relax in the Docks Coffee House, which could not be better located in one of Southampton’s most historic and pleasant streets. Look at a fascinating pen and water colour illustrated map of historic Southampton by local artist Carloline Misselbrook. And enjoy one of Dan and Dishi’s delicious cream teas.
