Great Places to Visit in Southampton
Held every September, the Southampton Boat Show promises a fascinating experience for both the young and old alike. Simply walking down the marina is an experience in itself, what with over 300 boats of all size and shapes participating in the annual festival, which attracts visitors from far and wide to Southampton each year.
Now, if you’re also interested in savouring food from the sea, you’ll probably find what you’re looking for at the seafront. There’s Ross Burden‘s Waterfront Restaurant, which specializes in sumptuous seafood delights and, during the Southampton Boat Show, is quite close to the action as well. For people with more modest budgets, there are many kiosks in the area that offer food and drinks such as the Seafood Terrace and the famous Guinness Bar.
When night falls, Southampton still has a lot to offer, especially to romantic couples eager to have a night on the town. There are many bars, restaurants and night-time attractions to savor.
Film lovers will be happy to see that the city has a number of excellent cinemas. Visit the Ocean Village at the waterfront area to experience Virgin cinema. For foreign and art films, you can go to the Harbour Lights Cinema in the same locale.
