The Location 

This vibrant, diverse city on the south coast is steeped in history. Past residents include Jane Austen, and Southampton was also the site of the fateful voyage of the Titanic and the first flight of the famous Spitfire fighter plane. Southampton’s maritime and aviation history is honoured at a range of attractions around the city, but it’s far from stuck in the past. With the University of Southampton’s cutting edge research facilities, the new shopping and entertainment complex at Westquay shopping centre and speedy transport links by bus, train, ferry and plane, Southampton has long established itself as a modern city with a lot to offer. Southampton is conveniently located, with easy transport links to the beaches in Bournemouth, the historic cities of Portsmouth and Winchester, and the scenic New Forest.
