1 Best Southampton Attractions Every Tourist Must See

As one of the major ports in England, Southampton offers escapes to Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and other nearby locations. It is also very centred around the theme of the Titanic, since the ship is thought to have left the Southampton port back in 1912. The port itself offers an interactive model of the cruise liner, as well as a sea themed museum. If the sea doesn’t appeal much to you then take to the skies with Southampton’s Solent Sky Museum, featuring old airplanes such as the Spitfire.
