It’s a good thing that Southampton is the largest city in the county of Hampshire. If it weren’t, it might not be able to fit in all the exciting and interesting things that make it such a wonderful place to call home.
This is a city that offers so much variety, you could easily be fooled into thinking you’ve stumbled into somewhere completely different during your travels. Indeed, it’s hard to imagine – when looking at the medieval walls for instance – that you’re in the same part of England that’s home to the metropolitan South Hampshire: a space which Southampton shares with its neighbour Portsmouth. However, this meshing of worlds – this melting pot of history and culture – is what gives Southampton its character.
Speaking of history, those interested will find themselves in an intellectual candy store when it comes to Southampton’s many museums and historical buildings. There’s the SeaCity Museum, which is dedicated to both the city’s connection to the doomed Titanic and its place as a gateway to the world. There’s also Tudor House, with no prizes for guessing the focus of that museum. Alongside these, there’s also museums that explore medieval times and one that delves into the history of aviation. Like we said, there’s certainly no shortage here.
But in true Southampton fashion, it’s no one trick pony and certainly no cultural slouch when it comes to music or the arts. It’s home to the largest theatre outside London: the Mayflower Theatre, which plays host to a plethora of memorable performances, alongside plenty of smaller venues too. Perhaps though, you’d just like to go for a quiet pint, enjoy a stroll in the park or indulge with a bite to eat. Well, Southampton has you covered there as well. In fact, there’s simply too much choice for us to pick favourites here.
