Southampton is a city and major port situated in Hampshire, on the southern coast of England. It may forever be associated with the luxury liner RMS Titanic, which left the port of Southampton to embark on its ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912. Over a century later, Southampton is still England`s -- and indeed Europe`s -- largest cruise port. Noteworthy points of interest in Southampton include the SeaCity Museum, which includes an extensive interactive model of the Titanic; Tudor House and Garden, a living museum featuring buildings which date from the 12th to 14th centuries; and the old Medieval city walls, of which the surviving portions are the most extensive left standing in any city in England.
