“Good development, needs cleaning up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

A good development that would benefit from the removal of old ironworks near the Meridian Tower.
Am pleased that the marina now has Wifi.
Webcams would make it easier to time the visit to avoid inclement weather, especially for those travelling some distance and/or making a special journey.

“Besides a Converted Seaside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

The marina is a tastefully done conversion of the old coal docks that caters for sailing and motorboat enthusiasts. There are also a number of boats that do sea angling trips (and shops selling the required items). The marina has a very interesting Transport museum (including some old vessels) and easy access to LC2 leisure centre. There are nice but not exceptional eating and drinking places around the area. It can get a little crowded and rowdy in the summer months.

“Not as good as was led to believe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Plenty to see in this marina area although the surrounding area is less than salubrious. The National Waterfront Museum is definitely worth a visit. A few places to eat and drink but was surprised that not much seemed to be open on the day we went. A place you would visit once but not necessarily want to return to.
