We came to the Mayflower Park to view the departure of The Independence of the Seas and Oceana on 26/07/2014. Plenty of parking and a fantastic view of the ships, loved it.

If staying at Holiday Inn, Grand Harbour Hotel or Premier Inn, it is easily reached via the pedestrian gate along the Port road across from the Holiday Inn.

Always a nice park to take the kids. We come here often. Nice grass area for the little one to run about in and always a bonus when there is a cruise ship docked.

Unless you are on a boat, this is the only place from the town centre that you will be near the sea. It is a lovely walk in the park breathing in the salty air. It is about to change and be built on so hurry. The Mayflower sailed from here to America (it only called in to Plymouth for... More

The Park was lovely. Trying to find an entrance not so easy due to roadworks along the entire road! The Cruise ships left about 4.30pm and were amazing!

Love to watch the cruise ships arrive and depart. Great vantage point to watch container ships go by. Open playing field. Close to Isle of Wight ferry terminal. Good restaurants close by. A good rendezvous point.

a lovely little park to stretch your legs, good playground sea themed for younger children, mine like it age 6/4. Good icecreams and snacks next to it and very helpful and friendly there. My kids love to race to the top of the hill by the trees and roll down again sometimes. Great spot to see the ships going out.... More
