The Southampton Boat Show
I would have loved to have gone to this, but seeing as I don't drive and the website for me isn't easy to navigate, the nearest I will be getting to go is on the bloody TV! This is so unfair, and when I rang the helpline, they said that they hadn't been given any travel information apart from what was on the site! Although you can take the train from Waterloo, or National Express.
So if you havn't got a car, you can't go! Come on guys, not everyone drives and has to use public transport. Why are you not providing for this, the working class like as day out as well.
Rebuilding the town
Southampton is under going a bit of a transformation right now.
Half the town is a building site. Leave it until the year 2000 to visit as
the work should be done by then and we'll have a lovely new shopping centre.
