For a shopping weekend with plenty of other nearby attractions, look no further than Southampton. The city contains the WestQuay and Marlands shopping centres, which each feature over 100 shops and the smaller Bargate Shopping Centre, with 35 retail boutiques.
Southampton offers far more than just shopping though. At Solent Sky Museum, visitors are invited to find out more about aviation history around the Solent.

The city is the main port from which luxury liners, such as the QE2, leave. To get a closer look at these vessels, board the ferry to Hythe Pier. Whilst at St. Mary’s Stadium, you’re guaranteed an afternoon full of atmosphere if you can get tickets to see Southampton Football Club.
