A beautiful coastal town and popular holiday retreat for UK residents, Southampton is fast becoming one of the most admired destinations for those travelling from further afield. A major port town, the city is well connected to the rest of Britain and Europe by a range of transport links, including cheap flights provided by a number of well respected providers. An online price comparison site will allow those wishing to check flight prices the opportunity to compare a range of services by a number of providers and secure a deal on a cheap flight. One of the oldest settlements in the country, Southampton offers a whistle stop tour through the best and most exciting elements of British history, with Bargate Hall and Wool House two of the city's best examples of ancient architecture. But, there is so much more to this city than ancient architecture, with some of the finest and most popular restaurants, bars and clubs on the West coast all situated within walking distance of each other in the city's downtown area.
A rail service provides transportation to residents and tourists throughout the city and also provides a national service and cross-country routes from the city's main rail station. A city bus is also popular amongst residents but most tourists will find that the major tourist attractions in the city offer their own method of transportation. Southampton is a city bursting with things to do, from Michelin starred restaurants and trendy bars to the Tudor House and Sea City Museum there is something for everyone. With such variety this popular European city will provide you with an action packed, fun-filled holiday.
