All roads in Portswood lead to October Books! We are on Portswood Road next to the Co-op, opposite Nationwide Building Society. We are about one and a half miles from the centre of Southampton.

By bus There's a bus stop right outside our door. Buses generally run between Southampton and Eastleigh.

By train The closest railway station is St Denys, which is about half a mile away (see map). Trains from Romsey/Chandlers Ford/Eastleigh/Southampton Airport/Swaythling, from Portsmouth/Fareham, from Totton/Southampton Central stop here. Southampton Central is the main station in Southampton, so more trains stop there. It's about one and a half miles away from our shop.

By car...
- There is a free car park very close to October books in Westridge Road (see map), but it tends to fill up quickly.
- Further away, you can park free in the Waitrose car park for up to two hours.
- Or you can park free in the Portswood Centre car park.
