A great walking route via the beach and along the seafront, many surprising wildlife views as well. Watch the boats and the seagulls and admire the peaceful lull of the harbour. Used to jog along and see cormorants, otters and other little creatures. Good vibes and lots of great restaurants and shops to pass the time.

Love little Marina,with lots of little cafes and Restaurants,it was like being on the Continent. There is a short boat tripthat you can do,around the harbour,but unfortunately he finished early for the day,so we couldn't go on it.

A lovely place to walk round and look at the variety of boats that are in the Marina. Walk to the harbour wall and watch boats coming in and out of the locks. A lovely complex with a mix of houses and apartments. There are plenty of shops and various eating places - restaurants, bars and cafe's.

Love walking around the marine and regularly end up at one of the restaurants with the family when they come to visit us as we are just down the road.

We visit here often, the cinema here is perfect for those with mobility issues as it has no steps to seats. There is a lovely cafe in the harbour, we often visit for lunch in the sunshine. We have also had dinner at the harvester on the marina, which is standard chain pub food and often requires a wait until... More

Sunday my wife and I paid a visit to The Sovereign Harbour North. What a surprise. This place is packed with great shops, restaurants,cafes and water side entertainment. With the sun you really feel relaxed and well worth making the trip. Nice and clean and if you want to make a walk along the harbour there is plenty to see.... More

Really good array of shops, bars and restaurants. Shops aren't cheap but they are stylish. Free parking, a good walk around the marina admiring what we can't afford, all in all really nice. If you are on a budget there is a harvester which is always good when the family are with us. There is also a retail park with... More

Everything you need in one area. Cinema, shops, bars and restaurants all in the same idyllic spot. Sit and have a drink, enjoy a meal and all whilst sitting at the harbour-side and watching the world go buy.

I will summarise this as briefly as I can; Sovereign Harbour is everything that Gunwharf Quays isn't. Gunwharf has an excellent array of shops, restaurants, leisure activities and is a pleasant place to spend a weekend, Sovereign Harbour has none of this. The biggest attraction in this place is the chip shop (which doesn't take cards).
