  • After being into Southampton we got the ferry back to Hythe. Ferry was small but at 4pm not many people going to Hythe. Is worth a day out. £7.00 RETURN trip.  more »
  • After Holy Rood Church, we walked further down on High Street and found Town Quay. It was a very quiet area. Besides some restaurants and Queen’s Park, there is nothing much to do there beside is part...  more »
  • We were travelling across to the Isle of Wight and missed our ferry by 5mins. So turned into the Town Quay pier and pulled into an empty car park as it was late at night watching the other boats leave...  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.
