About this neighbourhood
The Polygon is a bustling and diverse beat near the heart of Southampton city centre.
There are numerous cafés and small independent shops in Bedford Place, sitting alongside large commercial premises and solicitors firms who are drawn to the area by the magistrates and crown courts at the bottom of the Inner Avenue. Just a stones throw away between Bedford Place and Hill Lane there is a residential community made up of long term occupants and students from the nearby Solent and Southampton Universities. Wyndham Court is also home to a large and close knit community of residents and the building is one of the most easily recognisable in Southampton.
The Polygon is also arguably the busiest area in Southampton in relation to the night time economy. There are over 20 bars and clubs within the beat which are visited by students and local alike resulting in the region being bustling almost every night.
The force responsible for policing and crime prevention in this area is Hampshire Constabulary.
