In front of the 02 Guildhall is a huge square with a few places to eat and drink. There are regular free events that take part in the square, check the Daily Echo or discover Southampton websites for what is on.

As you wheel up to this venue the first thing that hits you is the grand steps leading to the main entrance doors but don't panic because this is not the only access into this old building. If you look towards the far right side...More
