Welcome to Three Rivers Rail website!

Welcome to the website of the Three Rivers Rail Partnership, a group of local authorities, local people and the rail industry, working to promote our train and local bus services and doing what we can to improve our stations and services.

Why Three Rivers? The rail routes which the partnership covers run alongside or cross the Avon, Itchen and Test rivers - hence 'Three Rivers'.

Things are looking good for rail travel in the area: We now have a direct train to Salisbury from Chandler's Ford, Eastleigh, Southampton Airport and much of the Southampton suburban area. This also improves the service to Dean and Mottisfont Dunbridge and increases the number of trains between Southampton, Romsey and Salisbury increases to at least two every hour - Dean and Mottisfont & Dunbridge now have an hourly train service Mondays to Saturdays.

On this website you will find information about trains calling at Salisbury, Dean, Mottisfont & Dunbridge, Redbridge, Millbrook, Southampton, St Denys, Swaythling, Southampton Airport, Eastleigh, Shawford, Winchester & Chandler's Ford. As well as Bursledon, Hamble, Netley, Sholing, Woolston and Bitterne. There’s also station information and ideas for places you can visit within easy reach of the train: Ancient churches, a stately home, shopping, theatre, cinema, live music, restaurants, pubs, even a Tudor garden and tea room.

If you would like to help us - if you live near one of these stations and can be a volunteer on a station adoption scheme, or if you just want to join in our activities please do get in touch.

Many thanks
Mark Miller
