I arrived early and wandered around. It had been damp enough for a waterproof, but soon cleared up.

|Outside the Hampshire county council offices|

So we walked around some of the older streets.
Then along the shopping street.
|Parody sign - King Alf raises a glass.|
|The market in the background - the real King Alf is hidden at he bottom somewhere|
We visited the Great Hall with its Round Table, constructed in the mid to late thirteenth century - a bit late for Arthur. Then outside to Queen Eleanor's Garden - a reconstruction of a medieval garden.
|Infra sunt nomina comitatus militum de com Soton (???)|
|Please do not sit on the judge's bench!|
After Mary and Tony had caught the train, I strolled back to the market to buy some bread, cheese and Turkish Delight - always one for a balanced diet.
|Silly signs time - no go?|
