Inspiration Wednesday – Southampton

This week’s #InspirationWednesday is Southampton, in Hampshire. Used as an international port, Southampton is well-known as the starting point for Titanic before its fateful maiden voyage.

With a close proximity to the New Forest, Dorset and the crossover to Isle of Wight, Jersey and Guernsey, this is a very desirable location to live in or visit. The two universities here mean that the city is always bustling too, and with the HQ of some large, international businesses also located here, there is a large mix of ages, people and professions.

There is a lot of history in Southampton, going back as far as the Stone Age, and this is reflected in most of the architecture in the city centre. There are also lots of attractions on offer to residents, such as the Mayflower Theatre, Netley Abbey, Royal Victoria Country Park, City Art Gallery and Hythe Pier. This is the perfect place to live if you want to be close to amenities and attractions but with the country within easy reach too!
