Welcome to Southampton

Visit Southampton for its waterside living, incredible shopping experience and maritime history.



Here are some of our personal favourite hangouts, in Southampton.

Charters is located in the cathedral city of Winchester and other thriving market towns, including Alresford, Alton, Bishops Waltham, Chandlers Ford, Farnham and Romsey. These locations are well positioned to reach the coast, as well as other large towns such as Basingstoke and Reading to the north, and Portsmouth and Bournemouth to the south. It is also well worth noting the myriad of pretty villages and beautiful countryside that Hampshire has to offer.

Although all locations are within comfortable reach of the London airports, they are just short journeys from the airports at Southampton and Bournemouth, providing both domestic, and an increasing number of international flights. Should flying not appeal, you can always reach the continent by sea from either Portsmouth or Southampton. Both Winchester and Alton have fast and frequent railway services to London Waterloo, with the journeys taking approximately 55 minutes.
