Eastleigh, a quaint, residential city, is just far enough from London to be out of the bustle yet close enough for a day trip. Part of Southampton, the city rests on the River Itchen, where nature brings sightseers and sportsmen to pass time. Fly-fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or taking in a show at the theatre are favourite things to do. Full of local restaurants and scattered with pubs and cafes, Eastleigh also caters to residents with shopping centres and parks. The area was established to accommodate the growing needs of the local manufacturing and railway industries’ growth.
- Participate in one of the workshops or family activities offered at the Eastleigh Museum where visitors can also explore the history of the city and the Southampton area free of charge.
- See endangered wildlife and explore meadows, waterways, and forests at one of the local parks like Itchen Valley Country Park, Lakeside Country Park, or Hocombe Mead, and along the River Itchen.
- Attend Eastleigh, in Southampton’s annual family-oriented music festival in May and July at Fleming Park with live music from local and international artists as well as music, dance, and art workshops.
To get to town easily, book a flight to the Southampton Airport right on the city's border. The airport is a stop on the railway, with downtown Eastleigh being the next stop. An auto ride to London from Eastleigh will take nearly an hour and a half while a train ride lasts just about an hour. Ways around town are typically by car, bicycle, or on foot. Six different bus companies service the city or you could hire a cab from Happy Cabs or another company to get around town or to and from the area.
