  • The bar gate was built in 1180 and 1320. It was part of the town fortifications, which initially was intended to defend against enemy attacks from land, and was later extended towards the Lake. Therefore, the main gate is located in the North of the town fortifications. Alone 3 cannons were stationed on the bar gate. Even then, it impressed visitors from afar with its thick walls and towers. Highlight of the modern city and popular photo motive.

  • Part of the city's history,this was the main gate of the medieval city.Southampton has a long history.The gatehouse also serves as a meetimg place for guided walks.
  • Nothing special, just a castle entrance i guess. Anyway, nearby had christmas market when I was visiting in December 2017.

  • There's an exhibition hall within the Bargate, but main events are happening on Above Bargate street with one of the main events being a German Christmas market (2017: opening Nov 11th with Christmas lights switch on just before 17 o'clock followed by Santa's arrival on a flying sleigh).
  • Went to Southampton bike meet on a Thursday evening. Nice location and we'll organised meet.
