Southampton

This busy port city on the south coast is extremely well connected, with an international airport flying to most European cities and a direct train link to London. It’s so much more than the cruise capital of the Northern Europe – as it’s affectionately known. With over four million visitors a year, it hosts many music concerts, has fabulous art galleries and many acres of beautiful parks. It is also home to several exciting museums such as the Solent Sky Museum – documenting the city’s rich aviation history and connections with the Spitfire as well as the SeaCity Museum – complete with an interactive model Titanic.

With a Russel Group university as well as over 7,000 businesses including iconic names such as B&Q, Cunard and P&O based in the city, there are over 250 venues from restaurants, hotels and event spaces available for entertaining – with the largest venue able to host over 2000 guests.
