Enjoy The Best Of Summer With A Southampton Staycation

With summer holidays around the corner and the ease of lockdown restrictions uncertain, many of us are turning to the staycation to help us enjoy time away with family and friends this year.

The restrictions on travel offer the UK’s tourism industry hope for recovery as holiday makers discover what’s on their doorstep. The city of Southampton is one destination ready to show UK residents why it’s top choice for a family and couple staycation.

Boasting a waterfront location, Southampton offers plenty of outdoor space and activities for its visitors. From cafes, bars, and restaurants to attractions, museums, galleries, events and independent and national shopping. The diversity of the city provides everything you need for a relaxing or active staycation.

It’s not just what’s in the city that makes this destination so attractive. Surrounding Southampton is a wealth of places perfect for day trips and exploring. Southampton’s county of Hampshire is home to Hampshire’s Top Attractions, with over 60 family-friendly attractions, activities, and things to do in and around the historic city.

Thanks to Southampton’s good transport routes, visitors have easy access to coastal towns and villages, the stunning New Forest National Park and a short ferry ride to the Isle of Wight. 

Nathan Chart, Chair of the Southampton Region Hoteliers Association, says, “Southampton is a city of history and culture, with so much to offer as a destination. Perfectly situated for those wanting to explore nearby areas on longer stays.

The hospitality industry has been hit so hard due to Covid, we are looking forward to what we hope will be a busy summer. Our hotels are ready, with measures in place continuing to ensure guest and staff safety. With so much on offer and a diverse range of hotels to suit all budgets across the city, Southampton really is the ideal staycation destination.”
