St Joseph's is the oldest church in Southampton, dating from the 1800s. It is a good place to discover the maritime history of the city as the parish it used to serve consisted mainly of sailors, dock workers and other seafaring trades. The church buildings once housed the Stella Maris club, a spiritual, social and welfare organization for mariners and their families. It was a well known drinking club and drop-in point for sailors from all over the world. The church itself has some interesting features, such as the altar and the Gothic vaulted ceiling. It also houses the Titanic Restaurant Memorial (The).
