Conveniently positioned between Southampton and Winchester, Eastleigh is a railway town with a rich history and superb connections.
Combining a coastline which stretches along the Solent and the Hamble River and 800 acres of unspoilt countryside, the Eastleigh Borough (or Hamble Valley) is a beautiful and fulfilling place to call home. Visit Hamble village and enjoy views from the quay or one of the three marinas, while the children try their hand at crabbing on the quayside. With a fascinating history and a number of heritage sites, it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby cities, and a location that has been enjoyed by Jane Austen, Queen Victoria, Nelson, RJ Mitchell (who designed the spitfire and was first flown at Eastleigh airport), to name a few. In the town centre itself, you can enjoy professional theatre, contemporary and traditional dance, comedy, opera and film at The Point dance and arts centre, or two sculpture trails giving you the chance to take in a variety of public art around the area.
The weekly shop is made simple, with the nearest supermarkets within half a mile of The Sidings. Swans shopping centre is also just 0.5 miles away for a range of retail options and high street names, add to that Eastleigh Market for when you’re looking for something a bit different and you’ll find all your shopping needs well taken care of. When it comes to eating out, you are spoilt for choice. Whether you fancy a pub meal, a tasty Italian or some Indian spice, you will find a range of pubs and restaurants all less than 2 miles away. Entertainment and leisure options are also plentiful with theatres, cinemas and a museum all within easy reach and rugby, tennis, cricket, golf, hockey and football clubs for the sports fans.
Education needn’t be a worry with infant and junior schools and a college less than a mile from The Sidings, and Southampton and Winchester Universities within easy reach. Travel is easy too, with the railway and coach station within walking distance and if you’re going by car, both the M3 and M27 give easy road access to Southampton, Winchester, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and places in between. For journeys further afield, Southampton Airport is just 2.3 miles from home.
