Whether you are visiting as a family or with a group of friends, you’ll find plenty to do whilst staying in hotels in Southampton.
Southampton has always been famous as being the port from which the Titanic set sail all those years ago. This year, it has been 100 years since the tragic sinking of the ship and to mark this momentous event in history, the city will be hosting a number of significant events, celebrations and remembrance opportunities. The newly opened SeaCity Museum is holding exhibitions and visitors can take a walk through the many self-guided Titanic trails and heritage walks.
Guests staying in hotels in Southampton this summer can also take advantage of all the celebrations for the Queen's Jubilee. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will be celebrated throughout Southampton and with the city’s first fly past from the Red Arrows. The internationally famous team will be out over the waterfront to welcome Cunard's 3 Queen's, Victoria, Elizabeth and Mary II on a rare trip to the city.

There are of course plenty of other events throughout the year so you won’t miss out if you can’t make a visit to the city this summer.
