With spring swooping in and winter hibernation over it’s time to get out and explore again. London & the south west have so much to offer and we’re here to make your migration simple – spreading your wings has never been so easy!
A flying visit to London
London is calling…and it’s missed you! Whether you want to enjoy the latest West End hits with SWR Rewards, discover the latest dining experience, or join your fellow culture vultures at the National Gallery or Tate Britain – there’s nothing quite like the capital.
There’s no better time to visit either, with some great value tickets – pay just £20 return from Farnborough or book a week ahead from Portsmouth to take advantage of our Advance tickets at just £11.60 each way.
Need a wardrobe refresh or a new item for your nest? If you’re searching for that one standout flock (or frock), you’ll find some of the best shopping in the world in London – from vintage shops and designer boutiques to the flagship shops on Oxford Street, there’s something for everyone of all ages.
Make a real day trip of it all - and if you’re feeling peckish, grab some street food for lunch from one of the many food markets across the capital, like the South Bank. Round the day off by wetting your beak with a drink at a true London watering hole like the Fountain & Ink (and save 20% when you do, thanks to SWR Rewards).
Getting here is easy too – whether you’re hopping on one of four fast trains every hour from Guildford for just £17 return, or making a big day of it from Winchester at just £10.70 each way when booked a week ahead.
Book your ticket
Feel free as a bird in the country
Maybe the urban jungle isn’t for you – if you’re tempted by soaring vistas, fresh air and chocolate-box villages, there’s still plenty to discover. With more than 300 miles of coastline to explore on our network, there’ll be plenty to see for lovers of all things nautical, whether it’s a bracing coastal walk you’re after or taking advantage of a warm weekend to hit the beach for the first time this year.
Perhaps a trip to one of England’s greatest forests is in order? Discovering the New Forest means finding something new every time you visit – whether it’s saying hi to the local ponies or making the most of taking your bike for free on our trains to explore some of the amazing cycle trails. Finish it off with a meal in a quaint Dorset country pub for the true New Forest experience.
