Getting here

What are the directions from the train station?

We're a five minute stroll from Eastleigh train station. Turn right when you leave the booking office and walk up Station Hill (it's not much of a hill though).

Follow the path across the bridge onto Bishopstoke Road. We're just the other side of the bridge at the corner of Dutton Lane and Bishopstoke Road.

Do you have a nearby bus stop?

Yes we do – it's right outside!

Stop name: Barton Park; 
Blue Star buses No. 2 and 3.

Do you have bike racks at Steam Town?

We do. Plus there's plenty of tracks that head in all directions. Why not incorporate a visit into a ride along the Itchen Valley Way or a ride up into Stoke Park woods? 

Here's the Eastleigh Borough Council Cycle Map.

Do you have parking?

We don't have parking ourselves, but we can suggest parking very nearby. 

There is a new NCP car park across the road from Steam Town (behind S&T Cover) that is only 0.45p per hour


Please note that Dutton Lane is a busy road, not just for local residents but also for the businesses further down the lane.

We often get whole train carriages and car transporters moving about and so politely request that cars avoid stopping and parking on the double yellow lines. Please also avoid parking in the Dutton Lane permit bays.

Other convenient places to park nearby:

Chickenhall Lane (map)
Eastleigh Railway Station (map/prices)
The Hub - First 90 minutes are free Mon-Fri 8am-6pm/Sat 8am - 12noon (map/prices)
