The city of Southampton has always been influenced by the sea. The Hampshire city lies at the northern tip of Southampton Water which is a deep water estuary where the rivers Test and Itchen meet. Southampton city centre lies in between the two rivers. The Town Quay is the city's original public quay which can date its origins back to the 13th century. The Eastern Docks in the city were created in the 1830's by reclaiming mud flats between the rivers Itchen and Test estuaries. The Western Docks were created in the 1930's when the Southern Railway Company commissioned a major land reclamation and dredging programme.
One of the main advantages of Southampton Water is that it has a double high tide which makes the movement of large ships much easier. This is not caused as popularly supposed by the presence of the Isle of Wight, but is a function of the shape and depth of the English Channel. The double high tide is perhaps one of the reasons why Southampton Water hosts many of the world's largest and luxurious cruise ships.
Southampton is home to Southampton Football Club, sometimes referred to as "The Saints", who play in the Premier League at St Mary's Stadium, having relocated in 2001 from their 103-year-old former stadium, "The Dell".
Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and has a growing reputation for its culture, style and the friendliness of its people. The city offers a mix of museums, galleries, stunning architecture, amazing shopping and a wide range of restaurants and bars. The city enjoys a year-round buzz with an arts scene that regularly produces cutting-edge productions and attracts high-profile exhibitions that led to the city being crowned European City of Culture in 1990. Glasgow was also the United Kingdom's City of Architecture and Design in 1999 and its architecture is an attraction in itself. The city centre has countless impressive Victorian structures and then there are the unique masterpieces of one of the city's most celebrated sons, the legendary architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Beyond the city you will find many special outdoor spaces, but you can also find an extraordinary variety of parks and gardens. One of Glasgow’s best-loved parks, Kelvingrove, enjoys a fine setting on the banks of the River Kelvin and defines the centre of the city’s bohemian West End. Glasgow Green is the city’s oldest park and its history can be traced back to 1450. Queen’s Park in Glasgow offers stunning views on a clear day out to the Campsie Fells and Ben Lomond. It was also the site of the 16th century Battle of Langside.
