Taken on the night Cunard's 3 Queens were in the Port of Southampton England together, this is the top of Southampton Water on the way to Eling.
The Port of Southampton is a major passenger and cargo port located in the central part of the south coast of England. It benefits from a sheltered location with unique double tides.
The port is located ten miles inland, between the confluence of the rivers Test and Itchen and the head of the mile wide inlet known as Southampton Water. The mouth of the inlet is protected from the effects of foul weather by the Isle of Wight, which gives the port an advantageous sheltered location.
Eling Creek is situated at the head of Southampton Water
Southampton port is the busiest cruise terminal and second largest container port in the UK.
It has been an important port since the Roman occupation of Britain nearly two thousand years ago, and has a fascinating and multifaceted history. From the medi�val period to the end of the 20th century, it was of major importance as a centre for Naval shipbuilding and a departure point for soldiers going to war. It also played a central role in the development of hovercraft, flying boat services, seaplanes and the Spitfire fighter. Before the advent of jet travel it was Britain's gateway to the world.
In 1620, the Pilgrim Fathers, also referred to as the Pilgrims or the English Separatists, departed from Southampton dock for America in their ships Mayflower and Speedwell.
