With 3 principle routes its South Western Railway and Southern trains offer 3 services per hour in both directions – west to Southampton and east to Portsmouth, Southsea, Brighton and London Victoria via Gatwick Airport. The train station is actually located in Park Gate – a thriving community with a range of shops and places to eat and drink within walking distance.

Southampton, historic port town and gateway to the New Forest is just 17 minutes by train from Swanwick. Serving as a major cruise departure point, it is also possible to take day trips to the Isle of Wight from Southampton. On dry land this city offers a number of theatres and music and entertainment venues which include the Mayflower and O2 Guildhall. Shoppers are well-catered for with Westquay and the city's twice-weekly market. The rich maritime heritage destination of Portsmouth is 31 minutes from Swanwick train station with Nelson's flagship HMS Victory, now a museum, one of its major draws. Sharing the spotlight is Henry VIII's Mary Rose which was brought to the surface in 1982, more than 400 years after it sank.
