With first class shopping, lively nightlife, a fabulous choice of restaurants, culture, history and open spaces, Southampton has firmly established itself as a city that’s as exciting or as relaxed as you want to make it.
Widely considered to be one of the UK’s top retail destinations, shopping is a serious business in Southampton.

Confirming Southampton’s status as a progressive city, WestQuay Watermark is a dramatic new £80m addition to Southampton’s skyline. It is destined to become the city’s premier leisure led destination with new bars, restaurants, a 10 screen cinema and a new public plaza in front of the historic city walls which will host events such as concerts and plays.
There’s a dazzling array of pubs, bars and restaurants to suit all palates in Southampton. Whether you’re after a quiet drink in a pub that’s retained its historic charm, or fine dining in a modern brasserie, the choice will take your breath away. Renowned as the city’s culinary mecca, Oxford Street is the first-choice destination for a diverse selection of cafes, gastro-pubs and restaurants offering menus from all corners of the globe.
The cultural scene in Southampton is alive and well with the Mayflower Theatre attracting major West End productions, while the inspiring new Cultural Quarter is a vibrant hive of activity, bringing music, drama, photography and art to a wide range of venues, including the revitalised Guildhall Square and the new Sea City Museum.
