During your stay, make sure you take some time out to see The Mayflower Theatre, The Solent Sky Museum, The Hythe Ferry, The Titanic Engineer Officers Memorial, St Mary’s Stadium and Manor Farm Country park.

Most of these attractions are free or very cheap, so they’re perfect for families on a tight budget.

If you like nothing more than a good night out on the town, Southampton is the perfect destination to fulfill your desires.

You’ll want to head down to Bedford Place in the early evening, as this is where most of the upmarket bars, clubs and restaurants can be found. However, if you’re more of a raver, you’ll probably want to the O2, where world class live music events are held nightly.

So, whether you want to watch your favourite rock band in action, or you want to dance the night away until 6am and get in a real state, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in Southampton.

Just make sure you read the schedules before you travel, as most big events will require you to purchase tickets, and they do tend to sell out in advance.
