Minibus Tours - Eastleigh Minibus
The railway town of Eastleigh is the ideal place to explore with a Eastleigh Minibus for those who are interested in visiting the picturesque Hamble Valley in the Eastleigh Borough of Hampshire. Although located just a short drive from Southampton, Eastleigh itself boasts a number of interesting attractions that are just waiting to be discovered on a day out.
The Hamble River cuts a path right through Hamble Valley and is extremely popular with boatmen and fishermen, while Hamble Village is a wonderful place to spend some time watching the boats and indulging in the many pubs and restaurants. The Hamble valley is steeped in rich history, with the 13th century Gothic ruins of Netley Abbey, the nearby Netley Chapel and the only working windmill in the county at Bursledon all making excellent attractions to add to the itinerary.
Eastleigh is also connected with the Spitfire, the famed fighter-bomber that helped win the Battle of Britain. It was built in nearby Southampton and first flown to the Eastleigh Aerodrome, which is now known as the Southampton International Airport. For those into the arts, the Point Dance and Arts Centre in the Victorian town hall has a diverse calendar of programmes throughout the year, including traditional dance, opera and film.
There are also several worthwhile attractions in the town centre, including Eastleigh Museum, Eastleigh Town Hall and the Beatrice Royal Gallery. Shopping here is also good, with the Swan Shopping Centre and its undercover high street stores, while nearby Southampton is the place to head for nightlife. People who have arranged Eastleigh Minibus hire can arrange for their designated driver to drop them at the nightlife venues of their choice and can be sure that the vehicle will be ready and waiting for them when they have finished dancing the night away.
