The historic city of Southampton is much more than just a cruise stop or shopping destination. Its appeal lies in its diverse nightlife, exciting retail opportunities, varied leisure facilities, superb art and heritage attractions, lively events programme and of course the excitement and charm of a bustling waterfront location.
Take it easy and linger in one of the city’s cool cafés and restaurants with menus from all over the world or enjoy the waterfront setting at Ocean Village with its popular restaurants, bars and cinemas. Oxford Street and Bedford Place are among the liveliest areas and offer a wide choice of restaurants as well as popular bars and nightclubs. Away from the city centre you’ll find more restaurants in Southampton’s suburbs.
