Southampton Airport No Way Park

Something has obviously possesed the good folk of Southampton to decamp to London for the day as, having arrived at Southampton Airport Parkway at the usual time this morning, the forty or so empty parking spaces I’d usually expect to find were all full. I set off in search of alternatives but the University Playing Fields have their barriers up at that time of the morning, the entrance to Lakeside Country Park now has a time limit of four hours, and the nearest parts of Eastleigh all have permit parking only. Consequently I missed my train and I’m going to have to fork out another £15 or so for the pleasure of parking at the airport. All of which leaves me wondering precisely what the monthly parking ticket I have for the station actually gets me. Where else does buying a ticket not guarantee you a space? Oh yes – on the train!
