    The Southampton Boat Show

    by LouiseTopp Updated Sep 16, 2006

    I would have loved to have gone to this, but seeing as I don't drive and the website for me isn't easy to navigate, the nearest I will be getting to go is on the bloody TV! This is so unfair, and when I rang the helpline, they said that they hadn't been given any travel information apart from what was on the site! Although you can take the train from Waterloo, or National Express.

    So if you havn't got a car, you can't go! Come on guys, not everyone drives and has to use public transport. Why are you not providing for this, the working class like as day out as well.

    :(

    Rebuilding the town

    Southampton is under going a bit of a transformation right now.
    Half the town is a building site. Leave it until the year 2000 to visit as
    the work should be done by then and we'll have a lovely new shopping centre.

    RMS Titanic undergoes sea trials on 2 April 1912.


    Some accounts by locals..........
    There are 2 mad old women who film students in the polygon.
    They hide in bushes in their dressing gowns filming into houses,
    plaster 'you are being filmed' stickers all over peoples windows and
    last year (apparently) they smashed up someones car. Avoid if possible.

    there's an organisation called southampton centre for independent living.
    mobility impaired web readers might find it useful www.southamptoncil.
    demon.co.uk For about half an hour sometime in mid September 2000 Southampton
    will have the largest city centre mall in western europe, when the new West Quay retail
    development opens.

    We have three memorials to the stricken cruise ship RMS Titanic - a plaque for the
    musicians who played on, a larger memorial to the engine crew and a tall monument to
    everyone else. There is a plaque on the wall of the Ocean Village complex that says that
    the first ever Japanese citizens to leave Japan in the 19th century first set foot at
    Southampton docks. Southampton has the world's oldest bowling green - you can find it
    next to God's House Tower archaeology museum.
