FAQ & How To Get There

Updated for the 2020 exhibition:  this page will be updated as bus and train times change nearer the date.

How do I get there by public transport?


Mainline Services:  Southampton Airport Parkway and Eastleigh stations are about 25 minutes walk away from the site (or see bus details below).  Both are served by local and long-distance services from London and the South as well as by Cross Country services from further away,

Eastleigh Lakeside Railway:  Frequent services from Eastleigh Parkway (ample free parking) to Monks Brook Halt.  From the halt it is 5 minutes walk to Chestnut Avenue and Barton Peveril College.  Let the (smaller) train take the strain…..  The ELR is at Lakeside Country Park, about 5 minutes walk from Southampton Airport Parkway Station.  Check out their website here 


Bluestar Route 5, (Eastleigh to Romsey, every 2 hours) from Eastleigh bus station, stops outside the college.


Xelabus route X4, (Eastleigh to Hedge End, every 2 hours) from Eastleigh bus station or from Southampton Airport Parkway, stops outside the college.



Barton Peveril College is located in Chestnut Avenue, Eastleigh, Hants.

Set your SatNav to SO50 5BX

There is reasonable parking on site, but if we are really busy there is “pay-and-display” street parking in Chestnut Road.  Please note:  All vehicles are parked at the owners risk whilst on Barton Peveril College premises.   Please do not park in the service road opposite the college.

You Might prefer to use the Eastleigh Lakeside Railway service to Monks Brook Halt as an alternative access.  There is plenty of free parking at Lakeside Country Park – see the BY TRAIN: section above.


Barton Peveril College is in Chestunt Avenue at the top of the map, Eastleigh Lakeside Railway is in the Lakeside Country Park in the centre and Southampton Airport Parkway station is towards the bottom of the map.
