A bustling coastal city drenched in history, the best things to do in Southampton are simply delightful. With its roots dating as far back as the Stone Age, parts of its twelfth-century stone walls still stand and its first museum (Tudor House), which opened in 1912, is still intact. Add to that the city’s football team, The Saints, a direct ferry to the Isle of Wight and a mere 20-minute drive to the New Forest, and there’s certainly plenty to get your teeth into. So take a look below and check out our round-up of all the best museums, attractions, restaurants and other great things to do in Southampton.
