From Woolston station, just a few minutes walk from home, journey times to Southampton Central are just fourteen minutes. However, the proximity of Centenary Quay to the city centre means that all the routes in and out of Southampton are within easy reach and because of its importance as a port, there are excellent links to the rest of the UK.
The M27 links the towns and cities of the south coast, and runs just to the north of the city, while the M271 branches off and connects the city centre to the Western Docks. The M3 is the route from Southampton to London and also, via the A34 at Winchester, with the Midlands and North.
Southampton Central is the main railway station, offering routes to Portsmouth, Winchester, the Midlands and London, as well as the towns and cities of the West; Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Salisbury, Bristol and Cardiff.
If you’re flying, Southampton International Airport is your starting point for around fifty European destinations and has fantastic access to the motorway network, allowing easy onward travel to the rest of the UK. The airport can be easily reached by bus or Southampton Parkway railway station.
Naturally, waterborne connections are part of the picture for Southampton travel. The city is the terminus for internal ferry services, which operate from Town Quay, and there are car ferry and fast catamaran services to the Isle of Wight and Hythe. A world of more exotic destinations such as the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Far East, America and Australia can be reached too, for Southampton is, as ever, a home port for some of the world’s most luxurious passenger liners, including the world’s largest, Cunard’s Queen Mary 2.
