Why Visit Southampton

Southampton is a port city on the south coast of England. It’s the main terminal for luxury cruise ships in the UK as well as ferries sailing between the Isle of Wight. Southampton is more than a port city. Often overshadowed by its more famous neighbours like Brighton and Portsmouth, on the south coast of England, Southampton is another treasure trove of experiences.

Visit Southampton and you’ll discover a vibrant city with a unique charm. The city offers its rich history, splendid museums, arts and culture and beautiful parks. There’s also a lively entertainment scene, not to mention shopping opportunities to explore. In addition, the city is surrounded by breathtaking countryside with easy access to the New Forest National Park.
