Visit Southampton

Travelling to and within Southampton

One of Southampton's great advantages is its convenient location on the south coast and impressive transport links. The city’s national and international travel links by road, rail, sea and air are unmatched in the region.  

Southampton is approx 75 miles from London and 21 miles from the Channel ports making it the ideal city break or a stop off point for cruise and airline passengers on their way to further afield.

From the North, London and the Home Counties, the M3, M27 and A34 provide fast, direct road links into the city centre. The A36 is the major route from the West Country, Bristol and Wales. From the East, follow the A27/M27 and depart at Junction 8.

Southampton Romanse gives details of traffic information and road works in and around the city. The Highways Agency provides 'real time' traffic information for all major routes in the region, and across England.
