Immerse yourself in Southampton’s buzzing city scene

Southampton, Hampshire

Spend a couple of days exploring the ‘Cruise Capital of Europe’ with its fascinating museums, lively nightlife and trendy hotels.

Enjoy luxury at the Pig in the Wall, located on the edge of the city’s Old Town. The hotel’s shabby-chic bedrooms are complemented by the snug bar and delicious deli that awaits you downstairs.

Spend your city break exploring SeaCity Museum, where you can trace Southampton’s links with RMS Titanic. Or indulge in retail therapy at West Quay Shopping Centre, with over 150 stores. 

In the evening, catch a West End show at The Mayflower Theatre. This summer’s big productions include Shrek The Musical and Jersey Boys.

Combine your theatre visit with dinner at one of the city’s many restaurants. From bustling Oxford Street to trendy Ocean Village, and in many of Southampton’s multicultural neighbourhoods, you’ll find cuisine from all over the world to tantalise your taste buds.
