UNUSUAL SHOTS OF SOUTHAMPTON, UK

Southampton is the largest city in the county of Hampshire on the south coast of England, and is situated 75 miles south-west of London and 19 miles north-west of Portsmouth. The city represents the core of the Greater Southampton region, and the city itself has an estimated population of 234,600 and Southampton is one of the largest commercial ports in Europe. Southampton is noted for its association with the RMS Titanic, the Spitfire and more recently a number of the largest cruise ships in the world. The city has a strong higher education sector. The University of Southampton and Southampton Solent University together have a student population of almost 40,000. Southampton is the only city in the UK with a geothermal power station. In a recent survey of carbon emissions in major UK cities conducted by British Gas, Southampton was ranked as being one of the lowest carbon emitting cities in the United Kingdom. Wiki

I will be uploading more pictures everyday that i have recently taken around Southampton, so please stay tuned and thanks for visiting

Impossible to see Southampton and not think about the classic ocean liners from the turn of the century.

Thanks, and that's right. It is a very green-town with many mini parks and green spaces.

Great shots mate! My cousin's at uni in Southampton so I've been there a few times and was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the city. A big mix of architecture and nice parks too.
