Well what WAS there to do there apart from look at a few rather decrepit shops ? It is well out of the way and when you get there nothing to do.

Relaxed place with some shops and restaurants, also a cinema complex. But could be brought more to life. Water is also murky with all the boats docked.

If you want somewhere to chill out, I like this place, not much happening as its still in development, but the bars are nice to chill in and watch the boats rock about in the harbour

I remember coming to Ocean Village as a child you had the shopping centre a lovely pond calshot spit which was a light house boat on the pavement. And I get here to realise my childhood has been smashed. its all gone!!! its all flats the pond is just mud and taped off and looks like it has been for years. The shopping centre has gone and is a construction site, I heard there building a 26 story hotel or flats which will be the highest building in Southampton apparently oh and a lovely old lady said to me that calshot spit is in Ocean terminal in dock gate 4 rusting away just dumped there as if it had been found in a skip. Yes counsil let's destroy a once beautiful place and make it a posh counsil estate with a few buisnesses around. This is not a place to go anymore :,-(
On the other hand it is nice to sit in the sun looking at the boats imagining Ocean Village as it used to be
