GroupRail to Southampton

Escape to the historical coastal City of Southampton for the weekend. Southampton has so much to offer and is a short stepping stone away from Portsmouth and the New Forest.


You can’t miss the famous maritime Southampton Boat Show, walk around some of the most amazing boats on offer in the market.. imagine yourself cruising off into the sunset.


Southamptons WestQuay Shopping Centre located in the heart of the city centre, boasts over 100 stores spread over three shopping levels. Big and small brand shopping.. cheeky nandos.. then shop some more.


Southampton is a perfect place to book yourself into a tour. Take a quick 2 hour cruise tours on the SS Shieldhall steamship which is run completely by the volunteers or if you fancy your feet firmly on the ground take a ‘Hidden History’ or bespoke ‘New Forest Platinum Tour’ to see the wild ponies!


If your a Southampton football fan then easy, go to the Southampton Football Club. If they’re your second favourite then there is the Southampton City Art Gallery, international renowned for the permanent Renaissance collection or the SeaCity museum. If you fancy something fast paced tenth Alpine Snowspnorts Centre or the Ambush Painball and Laser Tag may suit better?


Food lovers should head straight for the Boulangerie Victor Hugo.. otherwise there are a host of food havens which will get you through the busy day touring this wonderful maritime city.


An obvious choice for those going to this first class sailing location - simply visit the First Class Sailing school and cast off into the sunset!

To conclude, Southampton has too much to do to get down on paper.. its super easy to get to and a fantastic stop off on a longer journey. Get yourself down there.
