Hythe Ferry - Review
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.

Hythe Ferry, Southampton Reviews
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
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.
Enjoyed taking the ferry over to Southhampton. Hythe was a fun, quaint little town. Was there in 1997.
Expensive. £6 for an adult single + £3 for a bicycle for a 10 minute crossing.... Then once your on the pier they have lots of signs saying "no cycling" down the 700 metres of it.(which is fair enough if you have thin wheels) It's the first ferry I've ever been on where I've had to pay for a bicycle (I have been on various different types of ferry on my cycle tours around the UK, including the Inner outer Hebrides, Orkney, Shetlands, IOM, isle of Wight, and all the chain ferries on the south west coast... (Maybe I had to pay 10p extra on)) not many seats and no outside seating above deck to embrace the scenery. Still it got me to where I needed to go. I'm glad I'm not commuting. The gentleman who does the the gang plank was having a nap whilst the ferry crossed. I wish i could get paid to sleep. I can't really see where all the money they make goes.
You have to love the quaintness of this old locomotive that takes you along the railtrack, bumpy, rickety, but so much fun, better than walking to the Hythe Ferry
