Traveling by Car

Southampton is 75 miles (120km) from London. The M3 and M27 provide fast, direct access to the city. There is a Pay and Display car park for visitors, accessed from University Road. Please note that the car park can fill up very quickly during the morning and though there is parking available in the adjacent roads they tend to have a 2 hour maximum stay. There is also a car park directly at building 46 (Physics). We can sort a parking permit, if you inform us upon arrival.
