QE2 Mile

A unique timeline that reveals the hidden histories of the Old Town, the QE2 Mile is a pedestrian route that runs through the heart of the city linking parks, the new cultural quarter, high street, Old Town and the waterfront. It encompasses the Cenotaph, Titanic Memorial, Holy Rood Church that was bombed in World War II and Bargate at its centre.

From Bargate to the waterside, a series of cast iron plates are embedded into the paving of the High Street, each inscribed with a quote that tells of the many changes that have shaped Southampton, from early Roman settlement to the present day in the words of contemporary authors.
