A great walk on the pier while waiting for the ferry, you can also book a ticket on the small train if you don't want to walk, it'll drive right towards the ferry.

I use the ferry a lot. It's really pleasant the crew are friendly and it's a great way to see the cruise liners when they are in.

Friendly staff. Pleasant voyage particularly if it follows a cruise liner out. Reasonably priced, great way to get from Hythe to Southampton and back

Many people living in the 'Waterside' area are quite fond of their pier in Hythe which transports you by a small wooden train so that you can board the Hythe Ferry for a trip across to Town Quay. OR - if you live in Southampton, you can do the trip in reverse. One of the best times to travel this... More

We found the charm of the little railway to transport us to the end of the pier very delightful and added protection from the wind and the rain.

Travelled with bike from hythe to soton part way through a 50 bike ride. Reasonably priced and very convenient. Ferry itself is showing its age but the 15min ride was fine.

This was an awful trip. However it has the cheek to be advertised as an attraction I do not know! The pier & train are quaint I suppose, the 'shop' on the pier is dire. When you get off the train & see the 'boat' you can hardly believe that is what has been advertised. The write up says 'travel... More

The Hythe Ferry is a quick way to get to Hythe from Southampton and cheaper than taking the bus. The system for purchasing tickets is a little confusing. The machine does not take notes or card payment nor does it give change! You have to go and see the person sat at a desk just inside the doors to your... More

Great way to get to Southampton from Hythe. Always try to choose a day when there are some liners in as you get really close and it makes the trip more enjoyable. The staff on the ferry are always there to help you and are very friendly.

Lovely short trip when you fancy a boat ride, loved the electric train when you get off in Hythe. Brilliant! Fun for all ages.
