Information
SOUTHAMPTON
A vibrant modern City, the centuries old port of Southampton is amongst the most fascinating settlements on the UK’s South Coast. As one would imagine the city’s focal point is the fabulous harbour, which offers an eclectic mix of old and new facilities that cover virtually every aspect of nautical activity and interest. It is homeport to some of the most famous ocean liners in the world including QE2, Oriana and Arcadia. Along with first-class marinas with their copious moorings and services for pleasure craft the harbour offers visitors a wealth of other attractions. The incredible Leisure World takes pride of place complex. There you will find a multi-screen cinema, a casino, sports bar, bowling alley and choice of restaurants.

In town there is even more on offer with countless heritage sites, theatres, fine dining and a pub scene you would be hard pushed to match anywhere else in the country. Southampton’s shopping is legendary and has long been ranked in the UK’s top ten retail destinations earning the nickname ‘Emporium of the South’. Highlight of the shopping week is the General Market, which is home to over 90 stalls offering a mind-boggling array of wares and produce.

Culture vultures will be drawn to the splendid Old town, which dates back to medieval times. There you can stroll by myriad architectural wonders once visited by the likes of William the Conqueror, Henry V, William Shakespeare and Jane Austin to name just a few. Night owls will also be very impressed with the city after dark. Not only are there more bars than you can visit in a week, Southampton also boasts some of the best nightclubs in the country making it almost too easy to dance every night away completely. There’s also a happening music scene – you can fall out of a rock bar and a few doors down the road fall into a jazz lounge or funk club.

Whatever you are looking for from a break, Southampton will have something to satisfy your tastes. It is a truly exciting modern city with an ancient heartbeat that leaves you breathless and often inspired. A city that really has to be seen to be believed and a city that simply has to be seen full stop.

Hi Jed Sally and crew
Great news!!ALL of our guides are available in a printed version..And completely free of charge.There is a "Download Blue Pages PDF" tag at the top of each page on every one of our guides(We may soon be replacing this with an even easier option)You can print the guide off from here completely free of charge..Don't worry it doesn't cost us any extra either, so print some for your friends!!

Found your guide very useful while in Southampton and the Hamble, will be using you again in other areas, However a printed guide would be very useful when it is not possible to get internet connection, although this would incur more costs to yourselves is this something you will consider in the near future as we would certainly purchase one provided the cost was low?

Enjoy the show..

Choose a restaurant from Harbourguides food and Drink section, there is a good chance you will still get a booking, but be quick! Good Luck.

Wow, great to see this on here. We ate here last year on a visit. Really enjoyed the experience. We were lucky with the weather and felt we could have been anywhere in the world. The food and service topped the day off.
We can certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The Yacht Catering Company by Albert Luescher
Do not touch them with a barge pole. My elderly parents booked them for an event catering to all the guys who built their annex. All agreed. Time and all. They never showed up. We ended having a good night at the Jolly Farmer. Their response after? We emailed and never heard back. Sorry, spoke on phone and asked if we needed to pay a deposit.
