Positioned at the mouth of the River Itchen and the mouth of The Solent, settlers have occupied what is now known as Southampton since the stone ages, but it wasn't until medieval times that Southampton formerly got its name. By the late 13th century, it had become a well-established port and trade route for boats arriving in England from the continent. Because of this excess of trade, Southampton quickly became a wealthy town, and so its walls were rebuilt from their 12th century foundations to surround and protect the city. To this day, 14 of the original towers and six entry gates still survive.
Modern-day Southampton has become an important commercial Navy port, rivalled only by the close neighbour of Portsmouth. In 1912, the world-renowned Titanic sailed from Southampton, with about a third of those who perished in the tragic sinking of the vessel hailing from the city. The city continued to gain importance throughout World War 2, and was a heavily targeted by the German Luftwaffe to try and limit Allied supplies, submarines and ships leaving the docks.
Thanks to this thriving industry, prominent education and health industries and a thriving retail centre, Southampton is now home to over quarter of a million people, with the Greater Southampton region home to over 1.5 million.
