    I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming.

Additional Information on Expat Life in Southampton

Southampton is a major port city and its close location to London — just 75 miles away — makes it a very attractive place to live. Around 250,000 people live in Southampton, which is also within easy reach of the beautiful and wild New Forest. Living the expat life in Southampton means getting involved in the local culture, which includes the popular annual Southampton Boat Show, held in September each year. The city is also keen on its art and there are many excellent galleries to explore. Music venues such as the Mayflower Theatre and the Guildhall attract a lot of top artists and are great spots in which to see a show, while bands such as Oasis, Radiohead, and Green Day all played at the Joiners on their way to the top. Of course, Southampton's coastal location makes it a mecca for watersports and there are many marinas across the city.

InterNations: The Easiest Way to Grow Your Expat Network in Southampton

Southampton's location on England's beautiful south coast makes it one of Britain's most beautiful cities. The city loves its sports too, with Southampton's football team — known locally as the Saints — playing in England's top division, the Premier League. Expats who have moved to Southampton can get involved with the busy Southampton Sports Society Group right here at InterNations. The Southampton Food and Wine Group is also a great way to meet new people after moving to Southampton. At our monthly community-wide social events you can meet fascinating people from a wide range of cultures and backrounds.
