Best Things To Do & Days Out In Southampton

Sea lovers in the family? With all the fun things to do in Southampton, a day out in this lovely port city is ideal for you.

Older children and adults will enjoy the Sea City Museum with its stories of the people that lived and sailed the waters back in the early 1900s, including those who had a connection to the ill-fated Titanic. Explore an interactive model of the great ship in the museum and walk in the footsteps of those who boarded it with such hope back in 1912.

If you prefer to travel by plane then the Solent Sky Museum is for you. It tells the aviation history of the area and features the Submarine S.6 seaplane and Submarine Spitfire as well as other vintage aircraft.

During Southampton family days out you can continue your journey into history by visiting the Tudor House and Gardens. With over 800 years of history on one site, transport yourself back to the 15th century as you discover what life was like for the people of Southampton at that time. There are different featured events for all ages throughout the year, such as festivals, crafts and much more.

Just a couple of miles outside of the centre children can pick from laser tag, tenpin bowling or have a game of crazy golf at the outdoor sports centre.
