Once you have arrived in Southampton

Onward travel: Buses & Taxis

Upon arriving in Southampton, there are a couple of choices available to visitors who wish to make an onward journey. A bus service links the city centre with the suburbs and surrounding areas. If you prefer to travel by cab, a taxi rank is available at the station. If you plan to continue to Southampton Airport, catch a train to Southampton Airport Parkway.

Southampton Shopping

If you wish to make the most of the shopping available in Southampton during your stay, CrossCountry has got you covered. The city centre near the station offers a wide range of options. Westquay shopping centre is amongst the best of these with a variety of high street favourites, as well as lots of cafés and restaurants where you can take a load off.

For independent shopping, Bedford Place and Oxford Street both offer plenty of boutique stores and are imbued with the sense of history that pervades this charming city.

Southampton Culture

Much of the charm of Southampton lies in its location. Whether you want a romantic walk along the beach or prefer to take your family to see the New Forest wild horses, there’s plenty of opportunity to get out and about.

If you prefer to stay indoors, the city also has plenty to offer. Despite its small size, it has an eclectic array of theatres, music venues, and world-class museums. One stand-out is the Southampton City Art Gallery, where you can immerse yourself in art history from the Renaissance to contemporary work. Another perk of this compact city is that all its amazing eateries are within walking distance of each other – you can have dinner, dessert and drinks each at a different cool place.
