South Western Railway

Train passing along the fields


Travelling during the coronavirus pandemic? Help us keep trains free for key workers by not travelling unless it’s absolutely necessary.

With three South Western Railway trains arriving at Bournemouth station every hour in each direction, there’s no better way to be environmentally friendly for your next trip to Bournemouth. With room for bikes, luggage, and the whole family, it’s the easy and stress-free way to go.

Four stations in Bournemouth mean that taking the train is a great way to explore the local area – whether you’re heading to Parkstone for Boscombe Beach, or heading further afield to Poole, Christchurch or Southampton. You’ll also be able to save a third on your tickets with a railcard, making a day out even cheaper.

You’ll find stations at Pokesdown, Parkstone, Branksome and Bournemouth city centre.

So, who are we?

South Western Railway is a FirstGroup and MTR company, focused on delivering improvements for you, our customers.
As well as providing our employees with the right training and tools for their jobs to deliver the best possible customer experience, we’ll also be investing over £1.2 billion over the next 7 years. This will provide more capacity with new trains, a train refurbishment programme and station improvements, and new ticket options to save you time and money. 

We’re committed to giving you better trains, better service and a better travel experience and look forward to you coming on this journey with us.
