Ocean Village is a fantastic marina to visit! Not only does it bring you into the heart of Southampton and all this great city has to offer, but the marina also has a great deal to offer in its own right. Here you can find a multitude of great places to eat and drink within the the charming ambience of the marina or very close by in Oxford Street. You are spoilt for choice for cinemas, you can watch the latest blockbuster movies at Cineworld or something a little more cultured at the Harbour Lights arts theatre. However long you choose to spend here you will certainly not be stuck for things to do.

The marina is also home to the Royal Southampton Yacht Club. Although this is a members club (and perhaps you might like to join) berth holders and visiting yachtsmen are always welcome.

Marina Developments Limited (MDL) own and operate the marina.  If you would like to know more about berths at Ocean village (or at any other MDL marina) then this is the place to go. Their website has this to say about Ocean village:

The basin, formerly used for commercial ships, is deep enough to offer mooring facilities for tall ships and large yachts. It has also become famous for hosting the start and / or finish of around the world yacht races.

From the marina, there is direct access to superb and varied cruising. To the west is the picturesque Beaulieu River and the surrounding New Forest. Portsmouth Harbour lies only a few miles to the east and is home to a large fleet of modern and historic warships.
