Great range of places to eat and drink while watching the coming-and-goings of yachts, boats and people.

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.

In the nicest possible place, was a waste of time and I'll never get the back, quite clean and tidy but nothing there of any interest... To be fair there is nothing in the surrounds either, I would almost suggest getting back in the car and going to lymington or on a boat and get the hell out of their

I came here to go on a Seadogz Extreme RIB experience (which was great) and intended to hang around expecting there to be a bit of bustle and stuff going on. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. Ocean Village is a 'mixed-use' marina that is largely office park, part building site and part apartments, with two cinemas, a couple of restaurants... More

When the place opened back in the 80s it was THE place to be seen... Now.. most of the shops have closed, and although there's a couple of middle-of-the-road eateries and a cinema... nothing is that special.. it's mostly flats and residential buildings... Could have been so much more... but there we go... visit Gunwharf Quay in Portsmouth if you... More
