Southampton is the largest city in Hampshire on the south coast of England. The city lies at the northern tip of Southampton Water, where the rivers Test and Itchen converge. The River Test runs along the western edge of the city. It is roughly 75 miles to the south west of London and around 20 miles to the west of Portsmouth. The Port of Southampton is a major cruise ship terminal and ferry port. The ferryport is no longer home to any international ferry operations but it is the terminus for three ferry services to the Isle if Wight. Southampton's tradition of luxury cruising began in around 1840. Many of the world's largest cruise ships can regularly be seen in the port including vessels from Royal Caribbean and Carnival Corporation, which includes brands including Princess Cruises and Cunard Line.
Southampton has two large live music venues, the Mayflower Theatre and the Guildhall. The Guildhall has seen concerts from a wide range of popular artists including Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Manic Street Preachers, The Killers, The Kaiser Chiefs and Amy Winehouse. It also hosts classical concerts presented by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, City of Southampton Orchestra, Southampton Concert Orchestra, Southampton Philharmonic Choir and Southampton Choral Society.
Nestling at the edge of the South Downs National Park is the city of Winchester in Hampshire. The cathedral city lies on the banks of the River Itchen and is a short distance along the south coast of England from Southampton. The city has many historic landmarks including Wolvesey Castle and the Great Hall of Winchester Castle. The former was the Norman's Bishop's palace and dates from 1110. Most of the original castle is now a ruin although the chapel is now incorporated into the new palace that was constructed in the 1680's. Only one wing of the second palace still remains. The Great Hall was built in the 12th century and rebuilt at some point in the 13th century. It remains in this form today. The Hall is famous for King Arthur's Round Table which has hung in the hall from around 1463. The names of the legendary Knights of the Round Table are written around the edge of the table.
