Hidden Histories Trail – the Early Black History of Southampton

Saturday 6 November 2021

Join us for this guided walk around Southampton’s Old Town to learn the early Black history of Southampton.


From Black privateers to plantation owners, this fascinating tour shines a spotlight onto many lesser known stories of Southampton’s past to better understand the diverse heritage of our City spanning over 400 years.

The tour starts and finished at God’s House Tower and will be available weekly throughout Black History Month. The tours cost £5 per person and the proceeds from ticket sales will go towards continuing our work to research, learn and share the diverse history of Southampton in new and creative ways.

You will be guided by one of our friendly volunteer tour guides, who are all accredited white badge guides supported by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. The walks last around 90 minutes and comfy shoes are recommended, as well as clothing for all weathers!

Suitable for ages 16 +
