not been to Eastleigh for a while?


Eastleigh’s really going up in the world! It’s no longer the poor relation to Southampton or Winchester and was voted one of the top 10 most desirable places to live in Location Location Location’s recent survey. Eastleigh’s currently undergoing quite a renaissance, especially with the exciting redevelopment of the Swan Centre.


The Swan Centre is home to more than 40 of your favourite shops, including Tesco, Boots, Argos, Monsoon, New Look, Next, WHSmith and Waterstones, all under cover. And it’s always worth checking out TK Maxx for those great end-of-line bargains.

If you’re feeling peckish, try Boswell’s traditional café & restaurant - it’s got free wifi. There’s also a MacDonalds, plus Gandhi for Indian cuisine and also a Tchibo. After all, you can't shop on an empty stomach!

If you come on a Thursday or Saturday you can have a good rummage through Eastleigh’s market stalls. There’s a good chance you might pick up that special something you just can’t find in the shops!

The Swan Centre is open:
9am to 5.30pm Mondays to Saturdays,
10am to 4pm Sundays and public holidays.
