About This Attraction

Welcome to GHT, a brand new arts and heritage venue at the entrance to Southampton’s fascinating Old Town. Join us for inspirational art, stunning rooftop views and 700 years of history.

Explore and discover the fascinating history of GHT, with exhibitions, talks, workshops and ‘Stories Behind the Stones,’ an immersive four-floor heritage experience.

Unveil GHT’s dark history with a Tower Tour, where each floor takes you on a journey in time, from the 14th-century sacking of Southampton to stunning views over the modern-day city.

This major refurbishment of one of Southampton’s most important buildings includes two new galleries showing contemporary art and important works from prestigious South Coast collections.

The Heritage: Live! programme includes events with some of the best writers, artists and historians, all exploring Southampton’s iconic coastline and GHT’s lost connection to the sea.
