        The nearest station is Hamble. If people are driving and go through central Southampton they should be aware that there is a toll on the Itchen Bridge. Other routes are available though.

        For people getting the train, they can go direct to Hamble, it's a 10 minute walk from the station.

        However as it's a smaller station the trains are approximately once an hour on the Saturday and don't run on Sunday.
