I believe Southampton was heavily bombed during the war which means a lot of the city center is much more open than most cities. There are lots of parks around and the main shopping street is very wide. The downside is that a lot of the historic side isn't here.

I have enjoyed living in Southampton as it's relativly easy to get around. The people are generally friendly and I've mostly found it a safe place to live.

There's lots of shipping around so you can watch the boats come and go including the massive cruise liners. If you've not seen one before it's well worth a look just to see how massive they are.

You've also got Winchester, The New Forest and the Isle of Wight nearby for days out.

Southampton (or Solent) is a great place to kill extra time. The local pubs and cafe's offer some delicious food. The city itself is very green and has some friendly locals. If you fancy a bit of shopping then you've come to the right place.
