Exit the M27 at Junction 3 and take the M271 north towards Romsey for a short distance until the motorway ends at a roundabout.
Take the second exit onto the A3057 towards Romsey. After 1.5 miles turn left at another roundabout onto the A27/A3057 and proceed to Romsey.
On entering the town take the second exit at the roundabout, signed to Stockbridge, and after a short distance turn left at the next roundabout opposite the Plaza Theatre. Almost immediately turn right at the traffic lights onto the A3057 (Alma Road) signed for Stockbridge.
Follow the A3057 through the outskirts of Romsey crossing several small junctions, with Romsey railway station on the right. Proceed out of town, turning right at a mini-roundabout and immediately going under the railway.
Continue on, past Romsey World of Water on the right, across the River Test and past the Duke’s Head public house, also on the right side. Then turn right off the A3057 just before the village of Timsbury and onto the road signed for Braishfield, Ampfield and the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens. Proceed for about 0.25 miles and turn left into Jinny Lane (unmarked) which has a farm yard on the corner. The Ship Handling Centre is about 100m on the right (all distances are approximate).
