This famous church has a very interesting history.
In 1554 Philip of Spain arrived in Southampton, stayed 3 days, heard Mass at Holy Rood Church then left in heavy rain with 3000 men on his way to marry Queen Mary at Winchester Cathedral on 25 July.
Now just a shell is all that remains of the historic church today, following the German blitz, when Holyrood Church was bombed during the night of 1st and 2nd December.
Its shell now remains as a memorial to seamen of the merchant navy who have lost their lives.
The building contains a Titanic Memorial.
