Properties for Sale and Rent in Southampton
Southampton may look the very epitome of a modern British city, but signs of its rich, ancient heritage can be glimpsed everywhere – most noticeably the Bargate, a picture-postcard Norman structure slap-bang on the high street. Elsewhere in the city center you'll also see the Titanic Engineers' Memorial, a reminder that the great ship departed on its fateful voyage from Southampton. The city also boasts an epic green space in the form of Southampton Common, which features hundreds of acres of ponds and parkland, as well as a popular paddling pool.
Departure point for Isle of Wight ferries and grand cruise liners including the Queen Mary 2, Southampton is understandably centered on its port. But even if you’re passing through, the city has more than enough to make you want to stay awhile. The Hythe Ferry from the port passes Netley, site of a ruined abbey, and ends at Hythe Pier, home to the world’s oldest pier train. There is much older history in the city centre where the 15th-century city walls are amongst the most complete in England. Also remaining is the medieval Bargate gatehouse.
As for entertainment, the city is well served by theatres, and Oxford Street has the best bars and restaurants. All are easily reached from the apartments, B&Bs and hotels in Southampton available. There is also a surprising amount of green space in the city and its central parks are Grade II-listed. Slightly further out is Southampton Common, whose Urban Wildlife Centre is worth a visit. If you’re flying out of Southampton Airport, don’t leave without having visited the Maritime Museum or Archaeology Museum, both detailing the history of this long-established city.
