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

  • 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.

  • On the 11th April 2018 I visited Hythe village for the very first time. Not really knowing what to expect I found it a very beautiful village on the banks of the Southampton water. Hythe is a town near Southampton, Hampshire. It is located by the shore of Southampton Water, and has a ferry service connecting it to Southampton. Hythe has a small shopping area, a pier, and a very picturesque marina for yachts. The name Hythe means landing place or haven. Hythe is recorded in a Parliamentary roll from 1293. The Hythe ferry to Southampton is marked on a map by Christopher Saxton of 1575, and on a map by John Harrison in 1788. Hythe was part of the parish of Fawley, although it became a separate parish in 1841. The current church, of Saint John the Baptist, was erected in 1874. It is of red brick with Bath Stone dressings. There were at one time even stocks in the village. Thanks in part to the British Power Boat Company and it’s excellent access to the English Channel, during World War II Hythe was used as a port for the little ships of the Royal Navy as they were then known, the Motor Torpedo Boats and the RAF Air Sea Rescue Boats. In 1960, The Hovercraft Development Company and Sir Christopher Cockerell, who was the founder, moved to Hythe, he did in fact live in one of the houses near to the marina. There was also a small Royal Air Force base in Hythe known as RAF Hythe. Until its closure in September 2006 it was used by the United States Army to service and maintain watercraft. Hythe was a village up to the 1950’s, but the expansion of Fawley Refinery, now closed, led to a demand for more houses for workers, and Hythe and Dibden Purlieu were allowed to expand into a small town. In 1983, following the growth of Hythe, the parish of Dibden was renamed to Hythe and Dibden, to reflect the importance of Hythe as a new focal point of the Parish Hythe has a small shopping area clustered around the High Street, which includes a Waitrose Supermarket, a public library, several charity shops, and various small independent retail shops and cafes. The Hythe Pier, Railway and Ferry operates across Southampton Water to Southampton, and is the oldest working pier train in the world. Hythe's position makes it a good viewing point for watching ocean liners arriving and departing at the port of Southampton, which attracts ship spotters to the area. Hythe has a marina, at which a large number of yachts and boats are moored. Large and expensive houses are situated around the marina, overlooking the waterside. This is controlled by large lock gates at the entrance leading out to Southampton Water.

  • What a brilliant journey back in time, 110 year old electric train, wonderful pier, views of Southampton water and a jolly ferry ride to Southampton dock area, Thoroughly recommend a visit, even if you just use the ferry to Southampton, its half the bus fayre and much more fun

  • This little boat ride is one of Southamptons little Jems,not only a ferry too the beautiful hythe.you can some times see the worlds most luxurious ocean liners going in and out of the fabulous waters of Southampton

  • 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
