Winchester is situated in the centre of Hampshire, one of the largest counties in England. Located in the South of England, Hampshire has main ports at Southampton and Portsmouth, excellent rail links with London and a local airport at Southampton. The best way to get to Winchester is either by train - the train station is in the town centre - or by using one of our Park and Ride car parks on the outskirts of town. Parking and bus travel for all the family costs just £2.70. The shop is within minutes of any of the city centre car parks. The best value long term is probably the Chesil Street car park, which is five minutes from the centre, but is modest for a long stay. By Road - Winchester is connected to the motorway network with easy access from all parts of the country. Drivers approaching Winchester from the north should exit at junction 9 on the M3. At junction 10, motorists can only access and exit the M3 from the south. By Rail - Winchester is served by the mainline route between London Waterloo and the South Coast. Fast services to London Waterloo take approximately 55 minutes. There are also regular connections to the Midlands and the North. By Coach - National Express run regular coach services from London, Heathrow, Oxford and Southampton with connections from most other destinations in the UK By Air - The closest airport to Winchester is Southampton (Eastleigh), with daily flights from Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam as well as from the Channel Islands, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
