About West Hythe Quay & Biddles Gate

Part of the Southampton Old Town Walk.

In medieval times, this was a bustling waterfront lined with the houses of wealthy merchants. After the French Raid in 1338, the merchants were forced to move and the walls of their houses were blocked up to create the town walls. You can still see the outlines of the medieval doorways and windows.
