I love local art venues – God’s House Tower GHT

Do you know the history of God’s House Tower?

Southampton is a city of many colours and shades. I was born here and I’ve been away and come back so I see the goodness here that other’s might take for granted or dismiss.

God’s House Tower formed part of the walls on the edge of the city and was one of the gateways to the city in medieval times.

This place is at the bottom of town where water used to be but now you see Town Quay and the Red Funnel Isle of Wight Ferry port. You might have missed it but you’ll notice it now!

So what’s new?

The tower has been improved and renewed on the inside and is now open as a fresh arts venue and heritage space run by A Space Arts complete with Hoxton Bakehouse’s cafe.

Visit it and find about more about its history that was dark at times and joyful at others.

You may  have been there more recently for Knit the Walls or the 700 Women project.
