EXPLORE Southampton

Don't Go Home Without

Catch a show at the Mayflower Theatre, dating back to the 1920s. Choose from ballet, comedy acts, opera and musicals, including touring shows. If you prefer outdoor activities, there's horse riding, biking and hiking in the scenic New Forest, a short drive away. For some nature and wildlife even closer to home, spot ponies roaming in a field next to the hotel.

Must See

Home to Peppa Pig World, Paulton's Park is a 10-minute drive from the hotel. Kids will love the exciting rides and splash park, as well as the playground and indoor play zones with slides and ball games. You can wander through tropical gardens, play a round of adventure golf, or ride the train around the park.

Must Do

Got time to kill? Catch the ferry from Southampton Docks across to Cowes on the beautiful Isle of Wight. Sail the morning away or browse souvenir shops lining the town streets. A little train takes you across the island to seaside retreats like Sandown and Shanklin, dotted with beachfront cafés, kids' rides and art deco buildings. Discover ancient fossils at the Dinosaur Isle Museum.

Local Tips

Head to Southampton's Old Town to visit Tudor House and Garden. The house has quirky objects like a penny-farthing bicycle and a centuries-old sedan chair. Stroll through neighbouring King John's Palace, a Norman house which was once part of the city's defensive wall. Wander around the Tudor-style garden, with paths and low hedges, and relax with a cuppa in the café.
