Famous as a maritime city, Southampton was for many years the departure point of ocean liners, and today remains a busy port on the south coast of England, set at the head of the Southampton Water (inlet).

With over 1500 years of history the city has plenty of attractions for visitors, including its medieval town walls with 13 of the original 29 towers still standing. An excellent Archeological museum presents the city's history commendably, with over 3,500 artifacts spanning six centuries. There is also the Tudor House Museum complete with a minstrel's gallery and one of Henry VIIIs cannons.

Southampton's Town and Shamrock Quays are as busy today as they were four centuries ago when the Mayflower set sail with America's founding fathers, and the area has, not surprisingly, capitalised on the interested generated since the ill-fated Titanic set sail from these docks in April 1912. Trendy bars, restaurants and shops now mark the spot. The nearby Ocean village still sees off the occasional ocean liner among the many lovely sail boats.

Southampton has also earned the nickname 'Green City' thanks to the magnificent Central Parks which occupy a significant swathe of the city. To the west of the city however is a much bigger expanse of green, the famous New Forest, which presents a lovely day trip from the city. Alternatively you may prefer to wander along the chalk-faced cliffs of the South coast, admiring the plentiful sailboats on the Solent and gazing across at the Isle Wight. Ferries depart regularly to this popular summer destination, and the lovely Hampshire hinterland is another great option.

Modern Southampton is a lively city with a highly regarded university and a host of facilities and activities. Numerous pubs and restaurants are found along the waterfront area, particularly around the massive new Quays complex. Annually the city hosts the Southampton boat show and sees off several global sailing races, including the Volvo Ocean Race. Southampton Football club is another popular local draw card.

Southampton also boasts an international Airport. The M27 skirts the city's northern perimeter making access easy for motorists, but London is only 90 minutes away by trains which depart twice hourly from London Waterloo station.
