About Arundel Tower

Part of the Southampton Old Town Walk.

Arundel Tower may be named after Hirondelle, the magical horse of Sir Bevois, one of the mythical founders of Southampton.

Legend has it that Hirondelle (‘swallow’ in French) was so named because he could out-fly swallows. When Sir Bevois died the horse flung himself from the tower in sorrow.
