Transfer from Stansted Airport to Port of Southampton
Even if the oldest terminals have been there for only 50 years, the port dates back hundreds, as far back as the Stone Age, but not much is known about it from that time period. The first real evidence regarding the Port of Southampton come from the year 70 AD when the romans settled in Claustentum, the area on which the port stands today. The port mostly functioned for the towns of Salisbury and Winchester and it was really busy by that time. It was later abandoned in the year of 407 but reoccupied in 700 AD when the Saxons arrived in the region, named Hamwick or Hamtun. Considering the size of Hamwick which was occupied by around 5000 people the city also needed a big port to support the great number living there, so the first great developments of Southampton happened during that period. Trade routes started with Greece, France and the Middle East. Viking raids led to the fall of the town in the 10th century. Not long after that another town took birth close by, occupied mostly by Norman immigrants. The Port of Southampton played an important role when armies departed from England to France.
Trades also continued in the next centuries and even more routes were established with regions like Genoa and Venice. In that period two of the greatest ships in history were built here: HMS Grace Dieu and the flagship of King Henry V. In the coming decades the Port of Southampton faced raise and decline as it had become one of the most important ports in England after Bristol and London after which it fell in the shadow of the Port of London. It was around the 15th when the name Southampton was given. Trade picked-up after the 17th century and became even busier, while The Port of Southampton saw an almost unstoppable rise in the coming years. Today, a great number of people in London take transport to The Port of Southampton, especially during the summer period when they leave on cruises from Dover.
