Southhampton – Sailing port of Titanic

By Philippa Burne, UK, April 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Although the Titanic’s home port was Liverpool she never actually visited that city. Built in Belfast, she sailed from Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York, but five days out of port she hit an iceberg and sank. A tragic history was made and never forgotten. 4 of every 5 crew on the ship were from Southampton so it’s unsurprising that the streets, churches and families of the city are still strongly connected to that great maritime disaster which happened 100 years ago, on April 15, 1912.
