Several first class golf courses and country parks surround the town including Lakeside Country Park, a 22 hectare country park with lakes, wet meadows, woodland and a popular miniature railway.

Amenities in the area are excellent. Eastleigh town centre has a variety of cosmopolitan restaurants, inns, the Point Theatre and on the outskirts the Swan Centre, a shopping and leisure complex with a cinema, bowling, cafes, restaurants and well known high street stores. Accommodation choice includes a mix of great value B&B guest houses, usually family run with convenient free parking, internet access and a central location within walking distance of the station and town centre amenities.
