Eastleigh is in the south of Hampshire as well as in the south of England more generally. Originally the home of a Roman fort and once the home of Benny Hill, the modern town of Eastleigh is a bustling town with plenty to see and do. The local Swan Centre is a retail hub including lots of high street shops and restaurants, whilst The Point- the local contemporary theatre- holds plenty of plays and dance performances. The town also features a museum perfect for a rainy-day outing with the kids. Those who enjoy exploring the great outdoors can visit the New Forest, only twenty minutes away, and those looking for a city excursion can visit nearby Portsmouth and Southampton, both less than half an hour away from the town. Young families will love the range of schools available in the area, whilst young professionals will delight in the short journey to London, which is just over an hour away from the town. Properties for sale in the area range from cosy flats to more expansive family homes, with everything in between.
