Workshops, Southampton’s very own Goddess, and kids go free this half term!
We’re looking forward to welcoming families to GHT this half term. To celebrate this first school holiday of 2020 children under 16 can get into the Tower for free between February 15th and February 23rd.* Climb the spiral staircase to the GHT roof, travel back in time to the gruesome prison period and see how gunners defended the medieval town in our four storey heritage experience, Stories Behind the Stones.
*when accompanied by an adult. Buy your adult ticket online or at reception.
