The ‘Walk & Words’ set includes:

  • A ‘Hidden History’ tour ticket: a 1.5 hour guided walking tour of Southampton by SEE Southampton
  • Our gourmet, handmade Mint Chocolate Magic Circles, (or swap for Raspberry & Salted Caramel)
  • A book with great words: Secret Southampton OR the A-Z of Southampton; both written by historian and author Martin Brisland

The Hidden History walking tour by SEE Southampton is typically 1.5 hour long and takes you through Southampton’s past…filled with more secrets than you ever imagined! You will explore the city’s Medieval Vaults, the D-Day Wall, Medieval Quarter, the Western Walls, St Michael’s church and more. The Mayflower and the Speedwell departed from Southampton 400 years ago, therefore the stories around the Pilgrim Fathers are also included in the tour. SEE Southampton guides are accredited members of The Institute of Tourist GuidingTourism South East and received the Highly Commended Award for Excellence by The Beautiful South.

This guided walking tour departs from the Bargate several times a week. Tour tickets issued as part of this gift set are valid through to Dec 2021 and can be redeemed directly with the operator. Details will be sent to you after purchase.

Our (vegan-friendly) Dark Chocolate Magic Circles are intense yet delicately infused with locally sourced peppermint and created the artisan way in the New Forest. The peppermint taste ‘develops’ on your palate like a Polaroid, with the dark chocolate firmly in focus. Our ethically sourced chocolate supports cocoa growing communities as part of the Cocoa Horizons programme. Did you know? peppermint is a hybrid between watermint and spearmint, with 94% of the world’s production coming from Morocco. But we have our own English production in Hampshire, at Summerdown Farm!

In keeping with the Southampton theme, discover historic and trivial facts about the backstreets of Southampton in Martin Brisland’s coffee table books, Secret Southampton OR the A-Z of Southampton. Both books are packed with trivia and lesser known history to shed a new light on Southampton. The A-Z digs beneath the surface to uncover some of Southampton’s hidden gems. Famous people and local landmarks share the glory -including The Beatles – with the answer to why Southampton features proudly in one of their lyrics. Martin is a respected historian, tour guide and author. Want to know more? Read this review in the Daily Echo
