Or perhaps you'd prefer a local cinema ? There's the Vue Cinema Cinema in Eastleigh , or this page lists many others slightly further afield.
Cricket fans will be pleased to hear that we're only a short distance away from The Ageas Bowl . Fitter ones will be able to leave their cars here and walk to the ground.The Southampton Boat Show takes place in September every year.
