Southampton

Chris is a pain in the ass. He is also one of my best friends. But he'll never tell you anything which is very annoying. Such was the situation when he turned around and informed us that he was going back to Uni to do a Masters in Oceanography, and was subsequently moving out of London and to Southampton. But anyway, it meant we had somewhere to go and visit!

We started with watching the six nations, obviously, and commenced a bit of a pub crawl. This pub was particularly nice, the White Star.

Not least because they had honey roast peanuts!

This pub, The Red Lion, was AWESOME though! It was once Henry V Court Room - scene of the trial of those who conspired against the life and crown of Henry V in 1413, prior to Henry's departure to Agincourt the conspirators were found guilty and executed outside the nearby bargate - this is taken from the sign you can see behind Ben's head.

There was a parrot as well. We played darts upstairs.

Just a friendly game of 'Killer'. And then, after pubbing all day, we decided to go to the cheesiest bar in Southampton...Pop World...where we realised that we are sadly too old for places like this.

The next day Chris took us to see a couple of sights in Southampton.

This is the hotel where a lot of the first class  passengers stayed before boarding the Titanic, and below, the commemorative stone for those lost.
