Group Visits

God’s House Tower offers a unique experience for groups visiting Southampton. 

Be intrigued by the stories behind God’s House Tower’s 700 year history – from its creation in the Middle Ages as a purpose-built gun tower, to its transformation into a dark and dismal 19th century jail, and its current reincarnation as a 21st century venue, with art and heritage at its heart.

For groups visiting GHT, there is  plenty to explore including the opportunity to climb the Tower to see stunning views across Southampton Water. 

For groups of 15 or more GHT offer a 10% discount on tickets plus a free coffee or tea in the cafe for the organiser and coach driver. A free familiarisation visit is available to help you plan your visit and the GHT team will help you get the most of your group visit to Southampton.
