Why choose Southampton for your ceremony?

Southampton, whilst a vibrant and modern city, never forgets its role in history.

Southampton's most important historic building, the 15th century timber-framed Tudor House Museum, gives a unique insight into the lives and times of its residents though the years, and close by is the beautiful Westgate Hall, a Tudor merchant hall now used for events of all kinds.

We are fortunate to have a rich cultural heritage led by the SeaCity museum, housed in the Civic Centre, which tells the story of the people of the city and their links to the Titanic and the sea.

Also housed in the Civic Centre is Southampton City Art Gallery which is renowned for its permanent art collection around of 3,700 works.

We are proud to have the Mayflower Theatre situated in the city centre. It is the biggest theatre on the south coast and is housed in a Grade II listed building. It brings a diverse range of shows to Southampton, from Opera and ballet, to drama, musicals, and comedy.

As well as the annual International Boat Show, held here in September, Southampton is one of the busiest cruise ports in Europe.

St Mary's Stadium is home to an excellent football club and the city is one of the most important retail hubs of the South.
