This is where the Titanic set sail from, and it’s still a big port and useful transport hub - connected to lots of other European destinations. So for many people finding the best places to stay in Southampton is about finding a great place for a few nights on their way somewhere else.
But there’s quite a lot to do here. As well as being just across the Solent from the Isle of Wight, and just to the side of the beautiful and peaceful New Forest, Southampton has its own Roman ruins, the remains of a defensive wall dating from the Middle Ages, several listed parks and numerous art galleries and museums - several of them historic or maritime in flavour.
So it might be worth booking several nights in one of our Guru recommended best places to stay in Southampton.
