Drop off your bags at your Southampton accommodation, and head out to experience the nautical history of this historic port. Catch a glimpse of Southampton's past at the centuries-old Tudor House and Garden, walk the old city walls or spend a relaxing afternoon on the Common. Don't leave without making your mark on the regional history: charter a boat, or sign up for some sailing lessons from one of the numerous local schools.
Explore naval history at the Maritime Museum…or if you need a break from all the ships, check out aviation history at the Solent Sky Museum. Take your pick! Later, catch a show at the famous Mayflower Theatre or a game at St. Mary's Stadium. Southampton will appeal to any age or interest.
Fly in to Southampton Airport (SOU), just 8 kilometres outside of the city. Take the Uni-link U1C bus to Southampton, or hop on one of the South West Trains to the centre. You can also rent a car or catch a cab. Once you make it to the city, get around via city bus, bike or foot.
