    The outside and surroundings of this brilliant museum are deceptive. Inside there are a host of airplanes, and excellent displays related to both aviation, and Southampton during World War Two. But best of all was an exceptionally interesting area at the top of the museum highlighting the history of the Hampshire Constabulary and the Fire Service. The volunteer guide Steve in this section was very knowledgeable and gave us a fascinating tour of the exhibits. There was so much there that we will return again to see all aspects of the museum.

    An engaging and informative museum in the city centre. The museum covers the history of Southampton with particular reference to The Titanic ship. A cafe and gift shop on site.

    Had a fantastic time from beginning to end.
    We arrived at 9, had a big delicious bacon bap and a brew. Great value for money, as was all the food and drinks.
    All the staff and volunteers were so friendly and helpful
    The ship was brilliant, so interesting nd well maintained
    Would definitely recommend a day out on the ship.

    Incredible stadium as well as service throughout from the match day staff. You can’t get this incredible Premier League experience anywhere else on the South Coast.

    Highly recommend.

    The dog deck is a little small and it’s a hide ranch that the drink and snack area is rarely open. Always clean though, and good access to the deck.

    Not a bad price to get in, you can get a phone which when you press the corresponding number tells you a bit about that particular area. It has a small cafe and toilets. The place is more of a museum than an house. The kitchen area was well set out but the rest of the house I was a bit disappointed, I expected to see rooms with furniture but there was not. I would still recommend people to go.

    The best thing about the common is finding the odd random hidden paths that go through the various woods. Within a short time, you can be surrounded by trees and feel like you're in a forest despite being so close to the open spaces and one of Southampton's busiest roads.

    Really handy for the cruise terminal, like around 5 mins walk. So if you forget something it’s close by. Nice mix of old and new.

    A good deal of the wall can still be seen and it’s well worth the walk around, not many hills and easy to get around.

    This is a lovely place to browse lots of little stalls but the gem of the place for me is it’s little friendly run cafe .
    Lovey almond milk latte and gorgeous home made cakes which is great to find as I don’t think you can beat a nice slice of home made cake . Nice selection menu and my husband loves the egg and bacon sarnie and very reasonable prices .
    Really friendly staff a must place to visit

    It’s a nice enough art gallery, I’m comparing this one to the many massive and beautiful danish art museums so it’s a little unfair

    There was a nice mix of new and old art with a really cool Perseus room, a large area with natural disaster / climate change art

    They had some children Easter event on but we skipped that

    The staff were nice and friendly and the gift shop well stocked with nice ideas

    It’s a nice little gallery

    The only down side was the toilets downstairs stank and you could smell it upstairs

    Besides that, worth a visit and make sure you donate so they can keep it open… and fix the loo

    Excellent if you wanna hear live music this is the place. Upfront and personal, old-school you won't get a better night out than this Mettalica re-loaded were awesome. The bar is just there and sensible priced. Just let the evening roll..

    This hotel is not what it is advertised to be;
    Having stayed here a few times, I’ve noticed the following;
    - The walk in showers spray against the door architraves and peeling off the paint - looks scruffy
    - the amount the hotel charges for a nights stay get the glass on the canopy entrance replaced as it is broken
    - the back lights in the Hilton sign need replacing
    - the lift never works for one specific lift
    - I’ve noticed new staff some of them credit to the ones that do, make no effort to say hello or ask how your stay is
    - Room service is charged for main meal then after dessert
    - hotel cleanliness in rooms need to be looked at specially carpets/ old bed stains / broken bathroom swivel mirrors
    Unfortunately I do not know why the hotel to not fix simple things, but most of the staff are so pleasant

    This is a good park with pleasant walks along the water. Lots of people taking walks here and enjoying the out of doors even though the weather was poor.
