Help! Need Ideas To Get To SOU!

Fri Jun 16, 2006 2:24 am

Hello all

I'm planning a trip to SOU and MAN on the 26'th of July this year.

My flight leaves at 0715 for MAN, so ideally I need to be at SOU by 0600. My only dilemma is that I have no idea how I'm going to get to SOU from Horsham.

I've tried the trains, parents etc, but none of them work with the times!

There are trains that run from late night the day before, and will take all night to get to Southampton, but I really don't fancy that!

Anybody any sensible ideas? Something that isn't going to cost me hundreds preferably!

There isn't really much other option. There is a train from Waterloo to Southampton leaving at around 0105 (or 0115 if you were to get on at Clapham), which gets there about 0250. Otherwise i'm not sure there's another way.

Should of thought about that before booking the flight!  Wink

Why don't you stay in a hotel near the airport?

You will be lucky if the MAN flight leaves on time ! - I did it a couple of weeks ago and it was 2+ hours late. The return was 3+ late. It might be worth checking teletext the evening before as late arrivals will get diverted to Bournemouth or Exeter and will lead to delays the next morning.
