Living in Eastleigh

A well-connected location

A direct route to Greater London in under two hours, the M3 runs through the town and crosses the M25 in Surrey – which circles the entire fringe of Greater London. Southampton and Winchester are both under 20 minutes away by car, so you get the benefits of village and city life, from the modern comforts of a new house, on your doorstep.  

The village has, not one, but three train stations available: Eastleigh, Southampton Airport Parkway and Chandlers Ford – and you can get to London Waterloo in approximately an hour and a half. 

For international travel, you have Southampton Airport less than 10 minutes by car – a jet-setter’s dream.   

Coast and countryside living

Life near the Solent – a strait between the Isle of Wight and the mainland – means the sea and a love of sailing are part of everyday living near the coast. So if you love to sail or watch the ships go by, this is certainly a good place to buy a new home.

For stunning scenery and long countryside walks, to the west, you have the New Forest and the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; and to the east, the South Downs National Park. 

Winchester offers fun for all the family with its ancient history and historic cathedral. Plus, with bustling Southampton so close, you truly have a wonderful variety of weekend activities to choose from.

Town life and the city of Southampton 

For everyday amenities, you have a shopping centre, a wide range of facilities, local shops, restaurants and pubs. 

Perfect for growing families, the town has an excellent choice of both primary and secondary schools, including the Shakespeare Infant School which was previously rated ‘outstanding’. For 16+ students there are also two further education colleges. 

Famous for its maritime heritage and seafaring lifestyle, you can get to Southampton by train in 15 minutes. Perfect if you’re looking for city-sized shopping, services, leisure and entertainment venues.
