Ocean Village is now a modern marina right in the heart of the Southampton docks, and surrounded by hotels, restaurants, bars, cinemas and luxury flats.
Formerly used for commercial ships it is deep enough for tall ships and large modern race yachts. For many years it became the home of the start of the famous Whitbread Round the World Race (subsequently the Volvo Ocean Race), and then British Steel Global Challenge run by ocean rower, Sir Chay Blyth.
Ocean Village is a short distance from the Mayflower Park, where the annual Southampton Boat Show takes place.
