PENS AND NEEDLES

FEBRUARY  - HYTHE TO SOUTHAMPTON - BY TRAIN AND BOAT

NEW YEAR'S DAY AT AVON BEACH

 

 

SOUTHAMPTON WATER - HAMPSHIRE,

TAKE A TRIP FROM HYTHE TO SOUTHAMPTON BY TRAIN AND BOAT

The weather is not guaranteed, but you can enjoy a cruise, life on the ocean waves, by taking the Hythe ferry across Southampton Water. If there are cruise ships in it is a good way to see them.

Hythe Pier, 1881 A strong, light iron pier, 2,100 feet in length...

The railway is the oldest continuously operating public pier train in the world. You can walk, cycle or take the train to the end of the pier and the ferry takes only ten minutes.

Stroll out of the ferry terminal and you can explore parts of the old city wall or walk up the road into the city centre. Southampton is a mishmash of old, new and not even built yet and I usually lose my bearings, so where the centre actually is I’m not sure, perhaps the square with trees decorated for Chinese New Year. If you want to shop or go to the cinema there is Westquay with Ikea close by. There are large parks, museums, galleries, a university, the lovely Mayflower theatre and a concert hall; so if you want to visit have a look on line first so you don’t miss anything you may be interested in.

The sun came out during our walk, but by the return trip it was windy and raining; the Seashells restaurant in Hythe was perfect for a warm welcome and late lunch.
