Terminal Information – Departing
Southampton Airport has one terminal with a couple of shops and eateries. World Duty Free has plenty of luxury goods, and if you're flying to France you can enjoy a tax-free discount. Shop & Collect is available if you don't want to carry your shopping around with you: just pick up your goodies once you get back to Southampton. There's also a WHSmith where you can pick up some magazines and snacks for the flight.
The airport offers three places to grab a refreshment before boarding your flight to Paris. The Globe Bar and Kitchen specialises in traditional British food, and is a great place to have a last minute bite before going through security. If you prefer to get straight to the departure lounge, you can enjoy a sit-down meal at The Olive Tree cafe bar instead. There's a Costa if you just want to grab a quick coffee.

What to expect in Paris
France is one hour ahead of the UK and the currency is the Euro (€). If you have a packed itinerary it's a good idea to confirm that the places you want to visit will definitely be open. Most shops close on Sundays, and a few museums and restaurants take Mondays off. Parisians are often considered snooty, but we've found that they open up a lot more if you attempt to speak French. Saying 'bonjour' (good afternoon), 'au revoir' (goodbye), 's'il vous plait' (please) and 'merci beaucoup' (thank you very much) will go a long way to ingratiating yourself. And if you really can't bear to speak French any longer, ask 'parlez-vous Anglais?' (do you speak English?).
