There are a minimum of two stopping trains per hour from and to London Waterloo and a faster direct service to the nearby town of Basingstoke.

Local Area

Hook is nestled in the far NE corner of the Hampshire and Berkshire borders just 35 miles south-west of hustle and bustle of London. The village is bounded on the east side by the picturesque valley of the River Whitewater, and to the south by two areas of common land – Hook Common and Bartley Heath. Bartley Heath is an area of wet heathland designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Bartley Heath and Hook Common are easily accessible from the village and are a great place to enjoy wildlife.

Arriving By Plane

We are equidistant between Southampton and London (Heathrow) airports. If you are coming from outside of the UK the service from Heathrow is quicker, more direct and better served. However if you are travelling from the UK or Ireland we often use Southampton as it serves those regions very well, is quick and inexpensive. You can get semi-direct trains to Hook from straight from the Airport via Basingstoke.

If you are travelling from Heathrow a taxi is the quickest and easiest way to get to us. It is much cheaper to pre-book a taxi to collect you from the airport. Taking a train journey from Heathrow airport is generally not recommended as you will need to change several times to get to us.
