Southampton is a port city on England’s south coast. You can find many museums and tourist hotspots from the Sea city Museum, home to an interactive model of the Titanic, City Art Gallery specializing in modern British art to the Tudor House & Garden, which displays artifacts covering over 800 years of history. The Hilton at Ageas Bowl lies close to transport links to London, Reading, Portsmouth, and Brighton and just a stone’s throw from the M27.

Best Time To Visit

English weather can be very unpredictable; therefore, planning accordingly can save you a lot of hassle. We recommend that wherever you’re traveling to in the UK, always have an umbrella and sunscreen at hand. June to September is the most favorable time to visit Southampton, as the temperature can reach up to 22°C, and during the day, the weather is warm and pleasant. Rainfall is less scarce during the Summer months, in comparison to other parts of the year. During Spring, Autumn, and Winter, you can expect to find heavy rainfall and very cold weather, which usually means fewer tourists and visitors.

How To Get There

Conveniently located, The Hilton at the Ageas Bowl is close to all primary transport links from London, Reading, Portsmouth, and Brighton. By rail, Southampton Airport Parkway and Hedge End Station are also nearby.
