  • I was last here about 8 years ago - vibrant and active. now an absolute dump. ridiculous parking, taxis and traffic just sitting there belching out fumes, people wandering around aimless. half the pla...  more »
  • Town Quay is actually just a big, loud, busy street along the harbor. Go to the investors of the ferries, the Queen Elisabeth Terminal and the docks. Also some of the described parks and parts of the city walls lie on her (walk the walls) as well as the Titanic trail, is otherwise not to see here.

  • I can't understand why there are so many reviews complaining about the parking, it is simple - buy a ticket and you don't get a fine, surely you wouldn't go to a restaurant, try the food and leave wit...  more »

  • Large port with good facilities and friendly staff. Wonderful view of all the boats, super large cruise liners and container ships. Near to town, Starbucks and some shops.
  • By far the nicer of the marinas in central southampton, Ocean village is ok but is overlooked by bars and as such very drunk people. town quay on the other hand is completely private and separated from the general public, despite what the pilot book might tell you they do now accept visitors, just moor against the floating wall on your left as you enter, bows in, port side to. there is little maneuvering space inside the marina so be prepared for some boat handling practice! they do not always answer the VHF and leave early so be sure to call ahead in the day to get the codes for the doors and facilities. Would definitely recommend. the only real downside is the RedJet next door.
  • good location to see the cruise ships when they are in and parking at the top of the quay would be better if there was a bar of some sort on the quay however Starbucks and a cafe is there too!
  • Excellent facilities the entrance was a little tight for a 62 foot yacht
  • Good facilities. Friendly staff. Very near shops and restaurants. Easy access from sea.
