Top Rated Attractions in Southampton

Search Radius (Miles)

Among the few noted villages that lie along the National Park in the County of Hampshire is Beaulieu. One can visit the hamlet of Buckler's Yard and see the Georgian cottages while visiting the village. Another significant place of interest is a small maritime museum and a modern yachting marina. The British National Motor Museum which has many historic motor vehicles is also worth a tour. Also part of Beaulieu are the historic Beaulieu Abbey and Beaulieu Palace House. Tourists who head to the New Forest also stop here and see some of the local birds which are a specialty.

Tudor House and Garden

This quaint Tudor-style museum contains a minstrel's gallery, creaky floorboards, old kitchens and one of Henry VIII's cannons, among thousands of other artifacts. It also allegedly contains the ghost of Anne Boleyn, who stayed here with Henry when the house was owned by Sir Richard Lyster, Lord Chief Justice of England. There is a replica Tudor-style garden at the back featuring a mulberry tree planted by Huguenots in 1570 that drips with fruit in the summer. On sunny days the garden is full of scented herbs and flowers, making it perfect for some quiet contemplation.

Jane Austen's House Museum (Chawton Cottage)

Jane Austen's House Museum is a must-see for literary buffs. Jane Austen moved here from Southampton in 1809 and began writing again, revising Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park. You can see where Jane wrote, sewed, made wine and enjoyed gardening. Her music book, a dress she wore, a quilt she stitched and the work table where she wrote her books are all on display. You can also see her donkey carriage - the door still creaks out a warning, as it did when Jane hastily hid her writing from visitors.

National Motor Museum

The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu has a collection of old and unique vehicles unlike any other museum in the world. Whether you are visiting the museum for entertainment or for education, it is an interesting and fun experience either way! The National Motor Museum holds about 250 vehicles, from antique cars to speedy record breakers. To see everything in between, pay this spot a visit.

Portsmouth Cathedral

Portsmouth Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral church located in Portsmouth. This beautiful white stoned church has experienced the brutality of history on itself, it was destroyed several times in the past and rebuilt. So if you are in the city do not miss out on visiting this church.

Southsea Castle

This 16th-century fort in Southsea was built by Henry VIII in 1545 to protect Portsmouth from invading armadas. Today it houses an exhibition on the military history of the town of Portsmouth. Visitors to the castle enjoy an audio-visual show and static reconstructed scenes that give an idea of how life in the castle was during the 16th century. There are also displays of artillery, plus underground tunnels to explore.
