Southampton Introduction

The port city of Southampton bustles with activity on the southern coast of England. Cruise ships are still a constant sight, coming and going from here on their way towards the English Channel and beyond, while the city's somber history as the departure point for the ill-fated Titanic is preserved in stories and museum displays. With an intriguing contrast of medieval city walls and buildings and modern-day shopping and entertainment, Southampton has something for everyone – especially if you love spending time outdoors enjoying the fresh sea air.

Hotels in Southampton

Thanks to its cruise terminals that keep a steady flow of visitors coming through, Southampton has a wide selection of accommodations to choose from. Whether you're looking for a traditional hotel, a serviced apartment with room for a large family, or a boutique inn or bed and breakfast, you'll find something right up your alley. Discount hotels come in the form of guest houses with modest rooms and 2 and 3-star hotels with basic amenities, while a few luxury properties in Southampton feature sleek, modern designs with big, bright windows and onsite fitness centers, indoor pools, and rooftop terraces.

Where to stay

Fronting the River Itchen, the area surrounding the Ocean Village development is a hub of amenities, with its marina and yacht club perfect for sailing off to sea, and waterfront restaurants, movie theaters, and museums to keep the whole family entertained. If you're looking for close access to the cruise terminals here, you'll want to stay to the south of the city, toward the River Test. The Old Town streets are convenient for tons of shopping and dining options, as well as a couple of parks and green spaces with sports courts, playgrounds, and walking paths.

Things to see

Southampton's portside locale on the English Channel means there's tons of seafaring fun and activities here. But first, head over to the SeaCity Museum for an inside look at the maritime legacy of Southampton. The infamous Titanic departed from this port before sinking in 1912, so the museum presents stories from the passengers and crew, and features a large scale, interactive model of the ship. If you want to head out into the Solent strait, you can charter a boat and learn how to sail with a skipper, or simply relax and enjoy the sunset with a drink in hand. History buffs might enjoy a walk through the city's Old Town, with roots in medieval times. Parts of the fortress walls and towers still stand here, as well as the old stone entrance known as Bargate, and a 1300s church that was bombed heavily during World War II.

How to get to Southampton

Those traveling by air to Southampton can look for flights into the regional Southampton Airport, or land at the much larger Heathrow Airport in London, just over 60 miles away. One of the most memorable ways to arrive and depart this port city, though, is by sea. The Southampton cruise terminals connect ships to the Mediterranean, Baltic, Caribbean, and beyond, while ferry services from Southampton and nearby Portsmouth cross to the Channel Islands and France. The city's central rail station has convenient service to a number of major cities in the UK, including London, Birmingham, and Manchester.
