That’s why this month we’ve teamed up with Visit Southampton and room2, the world's first hometel, to offer one loveEXPLORING reader and their guest the chance to experience this splendid city for themselves.

Best known as the starting point for cruises, there are many more reasons to stay and linger in this waterfront metropolis for a weekend or midweek break.

Join a walking tour around the historic centre, get onboard Britain’s largest working steamship or even take to the harbour’s waters and give stand-up paddleboarding a go.

Or for something more sedate, why not book one of the city’s top-notch places such as The Grand Café for a sophisticated afternoon tea?

The prize

The winner will stay at the self-catering hometel room2 Southampton in a stylish loft room. Located in the heart of the city, room2 offers views over Queen’s Park and the harbour.

A true home from home, room2 is a place to live rather than stay with amenities including king-sized beds, a fully-equipped kitchen and plenty of space.

Perfect for families, Peppa Pig World is just a 30-minute drive away while the fabulous West Quay Shopping Centre is only five minutes by car or taxi, or under 15 minutes on foot.  

Four-legged family members needn't miss out either as room2 is a dog-friendly stay. Plus the prize is valid for 12 months from issue.
