Southampton Summer Junior Centre

Cruise ships, beautiful parks, home of Lewis School!

Southampton is a commercial centre and university city on the south coast, and is internationally famous for sailing, cruise ships and the Titanic. It is one of the greenest cities in England, has a Premier League football team and, with a population of 250,000, is neither too big nor too small. Southampton is also the hometown of the Lewis School.
