Six miles from the hotel, at the Solent Sky Museum, you can sit in the cockpit of a jet fighter and learn about Southampton's role in the golden age of aviation. The local Supermarine aircraft company designed World War II planes, including the iconic Spitfire. Learn about the seaplane flights that once took off from the Solent before having a bite at the museum café, called the Departures Lounge.
It's just a 20-minute drive from the hotel to the edge of the New Forest, a picturesque national park with a diverse range of activities. Meander through leafy countryside lanes and charming villages with thatched cottages, play a round of golf or take a ride on a quaint steam train through Exbury Gardens. Along the way, keep an eye out for the wild ponies that live in the forest.
Don't Go Home Without
The sinking of the Titanic had a profound effect on Southampton, home to most of the ship's crew. A moving exhibition at the SeaCity Museum, six miles from the hotel, explores the ill-fated voyage. Meanwhile, the museum's Gateway to the World display follows the thousands of people who passed through the port over centuries, including Huguenots, Industrialists and the Mayflower's Pilgrim Fathers.
You'll find some of Southampton's most vibrant live entertainment at the Mayflower Theatre, just five miles from the hotel. From touring West End shows to stand-up comedy, classic operas to ballet, the theatre's huge auditorium hosts all types of performances. If you've ever fancied a career on stage, you can sign up for a variety of workshops taught by professional acting and singing coaches.
