Southampton is a port city on England’s south coast. It is home to the SeaCity Museum, with an interactive model of the Titanic, which departed from Southampton in 1912. Nearby, Southampton City Art Gallery specialises in modern British art. Solent Sky Museum features vintage aircraft like the iconic Spitfire. Tudor House & Garden displays artifacts covering over 800 years of history, including a penny-farthing bike.

As it was raining quite heavily we ended up at John Lewis Shopping Mall in WestQuay. There is a food court in the mall but we decided to look for a Halal restaurant around Southampton Mosque.
