So much to see, so many lovely eateries. I can still remember the time when this area was dock lands! The transformation to today's ocean village is amazing. The whole area is very upmarket, teaming with lovely private yachts and luxury liners. What's not to like

I used to live in Southampton and loved Ocean village. It was always exiting to go there during the day and especially in the evenings. It was a vibrant and cheerful atmosphere, parents with kids, music, watching the boots, sitting outside on the benches. Now it's all been modernized, expensive bars, different type of people, less families, just the modern... More

Banana wharf is the best place to enjoy a cocktail before a fabulous meal, after a few hours on the Sunseeker experience

Ocean village had always been somewhere that I wanted to visit as I lived opposite. But I have to say that there's not actually a lot there! You can go for a meal and to watch a film but apart from that there's nothing else to do! After you've been there once I doubt you be in a hurry to... More

We came down to Southampton for a RIB trip and had a couple of pre and post trip drinks. The marina is clearly built for the boats that reside and visit as well as the local residents in the surrounding apartments. Not a great lot going on but there are a couple of good places to eat and drink as... More

It is an area with apartments and some restaurants. Nice by Southampton standards? But if you want to spend some time in Southampton it is not a bad place as a base - but not special worth a detour.

We sailed across Southampton Water from MDL Hythe Marina to MDL Ocean Village Marina, for a boat meet lunch at the Royal Southampton Yacht Club. The Marina staff were welcoming and had berths for a number of our boats, some staying over night, some just st for a lunch stop. We had booked our 25 lunches in the yacht club... More

As a local, I remember the good intentions of making Ocean Village a great recreational location. It started with reasonable facilities with lots of restaurants and shops in an old building which was preserved from its days as part of the working dockyard. This has now been demolished and replaced with high rise apartment blocks with just a few restaurants... More
