A part of one of the oldest transportation systems in England, The Hythe Pier, The Hythe Pier Railway Station and The Hythe Ferry all are an integral component of the system. The Station is where the locomotive halts and people board it. It runs along a 640mt long pier that goes deep into the water channel and you reach the Hythe Pier. The pier makes continuous trips between Southampton and Hythe a route used by a lot of tourists and shoppers and it takes about 15 min. The pier has a walkway and a cycleway too. The ferry mode of transportation has been in use since 1575 while the pier railway was built in 1881. The entire trip is fun and at the same time gives a great view of the Southampton water channel and cruise ships.

  • Really liked this trip across to Southampton from Hythe. Involves a short train ride to the end of the pier, so grateful they keep this maintained for our pleasure. And rested my bum cheeks in the same seat as King George VI.

  • What a great service. The operators on the boat, train and bus line were fantastic Very friendly and knowledgeable. Glad we chose to do this adventure

  • Enjoyed taking the ferry over to Southhampton. Hythe was a fun, quaint little town. Was there in 1997.

  • Quaint village not really changed since I was a kid.

  • An excellent way to get into town! We’ve used this historic service for years and it never fails. It’s around £7.50 for a return, and that includes a train ride up the pier and the ferry ride. (Make sure you look out for the seat that King George sat in on the train) The ferry offers fantastic, up-close views of the cruise ships, especially when the Queens are in. When you get into Southampton, it is a 10 minute walk into West-Quay, or you can take a bus for £1.
