With easy access to the airport, the Southampton Docks, and the city center, our Southampton Hotels provide the perfect base to explore England’s southern coast.
A bustling port city on England’s south coast, Southampton is situated on the Southampton Water and at the confluence of two rivers. An important defensive and trading site since the Stone Age, layers of Roman, Anglo-Saxon, and Norman settlements underlie the modern city. From the 19th century on, Southampton and neighboring Portsmouth have grown into significant maritime economies.
A great portion of Southampton’s authentic medieval walls have survived to the present day, including the 15th century God’s House Tower, which was built as an artillery stronghold. Step into the past when you visit the Tudor House Museum, or pay homage to the most famous ship to leave Southampton’s shores—the HMS Titanic—at the SeaCity Museum. Or, for a touch of culture, catch a live music or ballet performances at the Mayflower Theatre or the impressive Guildhall.
If you’re looking for top notch shopping under one roof, give the WestQuay Center a try. For smaller shops and friendly pubs in the city center, Bedford Place and Oxford Street specialize in English charm. Bargate, the historic entrance to the Old Town, features a quirky outdoor market on Fridays and Saturdays.
Grab a seat in St. Mary’s Stadium to cheer on local soccer heroes, the Southampton Football Club, especially if arch-rivals Portsmouth are in on the game.
A major port for the cruise ship industry, Southampton is also a stop for ferry services to and from the Isle of Wight. Its regional airport and train station serve multiple U.K. destinations.
