Heathrow airport-Eastleigh-South Hampton

Arriving London Heathrow am 10/29/10.

Requesting info; Is it easier to travel by bus or train to get from Heathrow Airport-Eastleigh?

10/31/10; Travelling Eastleigh-South Hampton to catch a cruise.

Does the train travelling from Eastleigh-south Hampton bring you close to the docks or is there other public transport that gets you to the cruise ship docks.

1. I selected Eastleigh do to the short time we'll be there.

The shorter the better

2. On train route

Not from Heathrow, and so are most towns in the UK so thats hardly a distinguishing feature

3. Hotel price and rating of Premier Inn Eastleigh

Cart before horse, start with location, in this case, a different one

4. Friends will be driving to visit so it's easy for them with free parking.

There are plenty of nicer places they could visit you instead, I"m sure they'd pass on the free parking

5. Generally, prefer a small town with few tourists to see and enjoy local way of life .

You are a mile away from the 'centre' of Eastleigh, you wont be enjoying the local life stuck close to Southampton airport in the middle of a roundabout next to a motorway

6. We'll have to return to see the sights.

You certainly will as there arent any in Eastleigh

FYI its Southampton, not South Hampton

For your own sake, stay somewhere else. Winchester would be nice for stuff to do, plenty of places to stroll. Or just stay in Southampton. Its like being offered toast or bread and choosing cardboard instead on the grounds its cheaper and easy to find.

There must be a reason the locals call it 'beastly Eastleigh'

And Southampton is pronounced S'famptun.
