Gateway to the City It is unusual for ENW to visit an attraction at night, unless it is a place of entertainment, but this is where you find us this evening, at just past 9pm, we have come to our 2nd Southampton location. The reason it is later than usual is that ENW has standing under the Bargate - a medieval gatehouse situated in the city centre. This used to be the main gateway into the city when Southampton had a town wall that snaked around the citys centre.

The Bargate was first built around 1180 of stone and flint and then became part of a new town wall that was constructed in 1338 after a French raid sacked Southampton. During the last 937 years the Bargate has also served as law court, the citys curfew alarm bell, the town hall and even a prison!

Southampton, unlike most English cities, still has some of its old town walls standing. And the Bargate is great place to begin our meandering path around the old town walls that should take about 90 minutes. As it is after 9pm, ENW might stop off in the odd pub on the way
