Situated in a Southampton suburb, Swaythling train station which sits on a line running from Salisbury to London has an interesting history. The WWII bomb which fell through roof and floor here in 1941 never exploded which means passengers can still enjoy today the original 1883 Neo-Flemish Grade II listed station building. Swaythling – once the site of the world's largest ever street party – offers plenty of amenities including both the Fleming Arms pub and the Round About café which are just a stone's throw from the station. South Western Railway trains run hourly to Southampton and Salisbury with peak time services also to Winchester, Basingstoke, Brockenhurst and London Waterloo, this latter with a journey time of 1 hour 34 minutes.

Southampton Airport bound passengers can take a 2 minute train journey to Southampton Airport Parkway while the city of Southampton itself with its wide choice of entertainment venues, shopping, historic attractions and ferry connection to the Isle of Wight can be reached in 9 minutes. A little further afield – 47 minutes from Swaythling train station – can be found the city of Salisbury. Those headed to nearby Stonehenge can catch the bus which leaves directly from the station but otherwise there is more to Salisbury than just its famous giant stones. On the menu of things to see and do in this ancient and now arty city are museums and art galleries, streets lined with buildings dating from Tudor times and the gothic cathedral. Topped by the tallest spire in Britain this cathedral is also home to a 13th century Magna Carta original – the best-preserved in existence.
