Nice area with a good selection of bars/restaurants. Always a good place to visit, especially when the sun is out as it adds to the niceness of the area. Perfect for that refreshing relaxing drink.

its just a lovely experience here, ideally on a 'better weather' day to just sit and relax with friends at a eatery/drinky winky place and relax ideally before getting on a cruise (as we were)

At once time this was...well, okay. It had a nice selection of places to eat and drink, but it was never great. There has long been this feeling this it could be so much more. Over time it has only got tired. It's a shame. Still if you like looking at boats I'm sure you'd enjoy it.

My boyfriend goes to southampton university. Being a student I am more inclined for a lively nightlife scene however I was brought here on a Saturday night for a few drinks and it was honestly one of the nicest nights I've had. Overall just a lovely atmosphere! The sights are breath taking, pubs,restaurants etc are beautifully decorated. The docs is... More

Nice place and even better with recent development in building the tallest tower in Southampton.Not much here, just a restaurant,boats and a good independent cinema but definitely worth visiting just to look at boats and walk along past classy residential areas, or to unwind. Definitely one of the nicest places in the city.

Lovely place to go. Always quiet when I have been. The world boat race (that ended here) was a great day out for the family .

Spent a long weekend in Southampton where the highlight was a family party aboard the "Princess Caroline" moored in Ocean Village. A novel idea with a sit down buffet which was excellent and bar followed by music etc. on the top deck to finish off a most enjoyable evening. We stayed 3 nights at the Premier Inn, New Road, where... More

When this opened it was a bit out of the ordinary and people visited for the shopping and novelty factor......Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth totally outstripped Ocean Village and continues to do so. Unless you have a boat in the Marina, there is no real reason to go out of your way to visit this place any more.
