Welcome to Southampton
Known for its well-preserved medieval city walls; 12th-century Tudor House Museum; and for being the Titanic’s departure port, maritime Southampton has played a key role in English history for millennia. But this isn’t a city that resides in the past. In fact, there are plenty of things to do in Southampton, which enjoys a lively reputation thanks to cutting-edge museums such as Sea City, a thriving Cultural Quarter, and a sizable student population. Its proximity to the New Forest National Park, the Isle of Wight, and Stonehenge is an additional advantage.
