A city located on the Hampshire coast, 120 kilometres from London, Southampton is known for having been the departure port for Titanic’s maiden (and only) voyage in 1912. The city has managed to retain traces of its prosperous maritime past, both in its commemorative sites and in the vibrancy of its port activities. B-Popular with business travellers, “Soton” also has many tourist gems to visit as a family, from its medieval relics (Bargate) to the Beaulieu museum, home to the largest collection of James Bond cars… It is also the perfect gateway to the Isle of Wight and its world-renowned music festival, which takes place in June.
