Book your place on our Hidden Histories Trail

You can now book your place on our Hidden Histories Trail, Southampton’s first Black History walking tour.

Launching this October to mark Black History Month, the Hidden Histories Trail will take you on a guided walk around Southampton’s Old Town, exploring the early Black History of the city. 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.

Our tours are led by a friendly team of accredited white badge guides, who have undergone a thorough training programme and can’t wait to share their knowledge with you. The tours will last around 90 minutes and cost £5 per person, with proceeds from ticket sales going towards the development of research and opportunities to support the learning and sharing of the diverse history of Southampton in new and creative ways.

Our tours will take place from 10am-11.30am on the following dates:

Sunday 3rd October, Saturday 9th October, Sunday 10th October, Sunday 17th October, Saturday 23rd October, Sunday 24th October, Saturday 30th October, Saturday 6th November
