Exploring our urban plot
Discover Southampton’s medieval history
Our urban PIGlet, THE PIG-in the wall, might be the littlest of our litter, but that doesn't mean there isn't just as much of it or the surrounding area to explore!
Neatly tucked away within the ancient medieval walls of Southampton, it's the perfect base for immersing yourself in the city's bustling high-streets, colourful nightlife and long and illustrious history!
Walk the walls and step into Southampton's history
Follow the signposts along the third longest uninterrupted stretch of medieval defensive walling in Great Britain. With walls and buildings that date from 1180, every step you take feels like a step back in time.
Just a stone's throw from the Isle of Wight
We're just a short stroll from the Red Funnel ferry terminal, which runs regular crossings to Cowes, the yachting capital of the world, every day. With plenty of scenic coastal routes for road-tripping, strolling or cycling, you can spend a day on the island and still be home in time for tea!
Or, why not mooch on over to Southampton's Ocean Village, a bustling modern development surrounding a yacht-filled marina on the River Itchen. The perfect sunshine spot for watching the boats go by!
The Mayflower Theatre
The Grade-II listed Mayflower Theatre features touring West End shows. Why not pop in for a glass of wine and some Piggy Bits at THE PIG-in the wall before a performance, or a nightcap after curtain call? Or, if you fancy spending the night, you could try one of the theatre's exclusive packages!
A cosmo rendezvous
Oxford Street is the home of independent restaurants and bars and just a short walk from our house. If you like nothing more than to eat, drink and be merry then Oxford Street is the perfect location!
