Hire a car in Southampton

Southampton is a favourite jumping off point to nearby national parks and nature reserves.

Settled on one of the world’s largest natural harbours, it was the UK’s busiest port up until the 1930s, and is now inseparable from its maritime heritage. Southampton is a lively and contemporary city, where you can indulge in cultural festivities or sit and watch the cruise ships float on by. Although most of the city’s four million visitors simply pass through as they board a ship bound abroad, Southampton is well worth touring.

Hiring with easyCar means finding the vehicle that suits you best and the chance to drive along the coast or into the surrounding forests.

The New Forest

A national park since 2005, the New Forest is an unspoilt patch of natural beauty.

While venturing through the park, keep your eyes peeled for the ponies, cattle and deer that roam free. Make your way around the woodlands and tranquil groves, either on four wheels or two feet.

There are lots of car parks located throughout the forest, within a short distance from hiking trails. From Southampton, it is under an hour's drive to anywhere within the New Forest.
