Fareham via Hedge End
It is also worth considering Hedge End, Botley and Fareham, strung below Eastleigh, because they now have direct train services into London. Hedge End can be reached with a journey of 88 minutes (season ticket £3984). While Botley can be reached in 91 minutes (season ticket £3984). Botley has some good 16th and 17th century houses and sits at the head of the tidal reach of the Hamble. The National Trust has bagged a few acres along the river to preserve them for the future. Fareham takes 98 minutes (season ticket £3984). Beyond that Gosport looms like an ugly giant.
