Southampton is one of the largest cities in Hampshire, nestling between two National Parks and the sea. Best known for its association with the RMS Titanic, the Spitfire, and one of the departure points for the D-Day landings. The port is steeped in history dating back to Medieval trading and defence. More recently, it is one of the largest cruising ports in the UK and welcomes visitors from all over the world. 

Southampton is also home to one of the largest shopping Centres in the UK - Westquay boasts of over 800,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. 

Also nearby is the stunning New Forest National Park, as well as historic Winchester, Salisbury, and world-famous Stonehenge. Consistently ranked as one of the best tourist attractions in Europe; Paulton's Park is only a short drive from the city.
