About Southampton

The Ocean Village Marina offers dozens of places to do lunch or just sit and watch the gorgeous boats and yachts leaving the harbour or discover some history at the SeaCity Museum telling the story of the Titanic which left from this very port. Southampton's main social hub is Bedford Place so start your evening getting to know the city in the bars and pubs clustered around the square and then head off with your hen party for dinner at one of the dozens of restaurants along Oxford Street.

Later on head towards Southampton's city walls through Ocean Village to hit some of the best bars in the city and then drop anchor at Leisure World where more night spots and clubs await you and the girls.

Local Tips

Learn about RMS Titanic

Everyone knows the story of the Titanic and most have seen the film with Leonardo DiCaprio! A lot of people don't know that it actually left from Southampton so if you're interested in learning more, the SeaCity Museum is dedicated to telling the tragic story.

See a film

If you love your films and fancy something chilled to do for a couple of hours then check out an arty film at the Harbour Lights Picture House.

Enjoy nature!

Chill out on Southampton Common in the summertime which includes a woods area, a lake and wildlife centre.

Relax down the marina

Take a wander down to Ocean Village Marina, Southampton's harbour and watch the boats leave the marina with a glass of wine at a harbour-side bar.

Eat out!

Get a bite to eat at one of the lovely restaurants on Oxford Street, the main hub for some alfresco dining in the summer months with lots of outdoor seating
