Southampton is the largest city in the county of Hampshire on the south coast of England, and is situated 75 miles south-west of London and 19 miles north-west of Portsmouth. The city represents the core of the Greater Southampton region, and the city itself has an estimated population of 234,600 and Southampton is one of the largest commercial ports in Europe. Southampton is noted for its association with the RMS Titanic, the Spitfire and more recently a number of the largest cruise ships in the world. The city has a strong higher education sector. The University of Southampton and Southampton Solent University together have a student population of almost 40,000. Southampton is the only city in the UK with a geothermal power station. In a recent survey of carbon emissions in major UK cities conducted by British Gas, Southampton was ranked as being one of the lowest carbon emitting cities in the United Kingdom.

Impossible to see Southampton and not think about the classic ocean liners from the turn of the century.
