Jurys Inn: Southampton


If you like staying in the heart of a city, then Jurys Inn is for you. There are 37 hotels across the UK and Ireland for you to choose from. Jurys Inn are known for their friendly service and convenient locations within easy reach of a cities top attractions, amenities and transport links.

I recently visited Jurys Inn Southampton, after an exhilarating experience at Go Ape (only 10 minutes away from Southampton town centre by the way). It was the perfect place to end my tree top climbing day and is also only a 10 to 15 minute walk in to the town centre to get a taste of even more action! Everything was literally on the doorstep, which for me when looking for somewhere to stay is ideal!

Southampton’s Top Attractions:

Go Ape: Fancy yourself a bit of a Tarzan? Want to jump from a 50ft and feel the thrill of the fright? Then you must head to Go Ape for 2 to 3 hours of mind blowing zip lining and tree climbing!

Southampton's 14th-century medieval walls: are the third longest unbroken stretch of city wall in Britain (yes historians this one is for you). And the only remaining medieval church in Southampton is St. Michael's on Castle Way, built in the 11th century and containing relics from the Norman period.

SeaCity Museum: tells the story of the people of Southampton and their role in Britain's maritime history, including the stories of those who departed from (or arrived in) the port over the centuries. It also tells the story of theTitanic, which departed Southampton on her doomed voyage in 1912 from the port.

Solent Sky: displays an amazing collection of models and photographs, as well as 19 magnificent flying machines, to tell the story of Southampton's aviation heritage. The region is famous for its experimental and development work of the 1900s.

Westquay: Last year Southampton invested over £70 million on a brand spanking new shopping centre. Home to entertainment venues, luxury shops, restaurants and a cinema, you won’t be stuck of places to go.


Jurys Inn caters for everyone, as does the city of Southampton, so whether you do find yourself climbing through trees acting all Jane and Tarzan, or wandering the city for food and drinks, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll be welcomed with open arms at Jurys Inn for a lay down on a bed fit for a king, or in my opinion it was more like laying on a giant marshmallow… ahhhhhh!

I will be visiting a few more Jurys Inn hotels across the UK so stay tuned to see where I end up.
