Why Fly to Southampton?
Life in Southampton has revolved around the sea for centuries and tourists still visit the city to hear about its maritime past. Museums tell the story of the Titanic, since many of its crew were from the city, while Mayflower Park and Mayflower Memorial celebrate the Pilgrim Fathers and their quest for a new life across the Atlantic. There’s a rich architectural trail through Southampton too, with the Tudor House and Merchants’ Hall showcasing how residents of the city lived and worked in time gone by. Archaeology museum God’s House Tower explores Southampton’s residents even further back with exhibits dating back to the Roman, Saxon and medieval periods.

Mini Travel Guide to Southampton
Southampton is a major UK cruise port and on a sunny day you’ll find tourists and locals alike picnicking in Mayflower Park near the cruise ship viewing point to watch the mega liners hove into view. The park hosts many of the city’s outdoor events including the popular Southampton Boat Show.
The city centre, around the grade one Bargate built by the Normans, also has its fair share of tourist spots including the ruins of Holyrood Church on the High Street, which was a stopping off point for the Crusaders to pray, and the City Art Gallery where you can peruse more than 3000 works of art. The maritime museum is also a Southampton must-see, if only for the wonderfully evocative recorded tales of Titanic survivors. Southampton’s Hall of Aviation also draws the crowds for its excellent portrayal of how the city played a part in furthering our understanding of flight.
Southampton’s Town Quay is also a popular spot for visitors to the city thanks to its many restaurants and bars plus its new marina whose hundred-odd boat masts you can hear tinkling in the breeze as you tuck into your lunch.
