Getting To Your Training Venue In Southampton

The fastest way you can get to your training at Southampton from anywhere in the UK is by using the Cosham train station.

Cosham, Portsmouth PO6 3BD.

From here, travelling to the Portsmouth Marriot Hotel venue is easy. You can choose between three routes—Medina Road, Southampton Road, or Medina and North Harbour Roads. We advise you to use Medina Road because being a 1.4 mile distance, it's the shortest way and only takes 28 minutes on foot.


Portsmouth Marriot Hotel offers on-site parking for those who choose to drive to the course but at a fee of £4 per day. Here are some of our other parking lot recommendations if you are heading into Cosham for lunch:

JustPark Southampton Road Car Park
Southampton Rd, Cosham, Portsmouth PO6 4SH

London Road Car Park
10 London Rd, Cosham, Portsmouth PO6 3EL

Wootton Street Car Park
1 Wootton St, Cosham, Portsmouth PO6 3AP


Your course is on Southampton Road, which has a walk score of 58 out of 100. It means that there are local shops and amenities but you might need a car to get to some facilities. 


Those travelling from far to attend our course may want to stay at a hotel. Well, if you have some money to throw around, you can stay right at the Portsmouth Marriott Hotel. But if you're looking for budget hotels, try Travelodge or Hotel Ibis. There's also a Holiday Inn Express, conveniently located only 38 minutes from our venue. You can check out other great hotel options here.


Being one of the busiest cities in Hampshire, Southampton is home to any tasty meal you could want. There's a Pizza Hut Restaurant which has a good value lunchtime buffet. To get there, simply head west for 144ft and take a left onto Binnacle Way. Keep going for just another 420ft, and you'll be at your destination.

If you're more into pasta, we recommend you try Zizzi. You'll find it on 33 The Boardwalk, Portsmouth PO6 4TP, and apart from their traditional speciality pasta, their list of treats extends to chicken, bacon, and more. The restaurant also does deliveries, so you don't have to worry about getting your food from within any local area.

You can't go wrong with breakfast takeaway at the Costa Coffee chain, offering hot drinks, sweet snacks, and sandwiches. And the best part about this spot is that it's only a 9 minute walk from the Portsmouth Marriott Hotel via Binnacle Way.
