Southampton is a maritime city and major port, its life intimately bound up with the sea. It’s a staging post for cruises and ferries, but it’s worth more than just a stopover for its mediaeval walls, boat-watching and SeaCity museum. The hotel scene is somewhat functional, but the gastronome’s favourite, Pig in the Wall, and the sporting Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, are destinations in their own right.
