Military Attractions in Southampton

Southampton is the home of the Supermarine Spitfire, one of the most famous aircraft ever built. Solent Sky Museum tells the fascinating story of this magical warplane. Florence Nightingale also had an important role in guiding the development of Royal Victoria Hospital on Southampton Water. Once the largest hospital in the country, the chapel remains housing a permanent exhibition, and the wider surroundings provide a popular country park.
