What Else Is Southampton Known For?

Southampton is noted for the being the departure point of the RMS Titanic, which in 1912 embarked on its fateful maiden voyage. The 52,000 tonne ship struck an iceberg on route to New York, with the Titanic sinking and ultimately five hundred people perishing in the cold Atlantic Ocean. The city was once regarded as Britain’s ‘Gateway to the World’ with its port playing a key role in linking the U.K. with America. The rapid growth of air travel diminished much of Southampton’s maritime industry, although the port has since re-established itself as a gateway for cruise ships across Europe. P&O Cruises and Cunard are both headquartered in the city, with over 500 cruise liners visiting annually. The city is not only rich in maritime history. Southampton is considered the birthplace of the Spitfire aircraft, designed and built by local resident RJ Mitchell across the River Itchen in Woolston. The local population kept production of this vital warplane going throughout World War II.
