Overview Originally the site of Southampton’s first working docks, the ‘Outer Dock’ which opened in 1842 was redeveloped in 1986 and became the leisure marina it is today.    Ocean Village, is home to spectacular harbour views, alongside an array of incredible local independent dining hot spots. Ocean Village is also home to one of the UK’s leading 5 star hotels which holds the exclusive and beautiful HarBar on 6th where you can sip exquisite cocktails whilst looking out to the gorgeous sunset across the marina. Should a night out be on the cards, we highly recommend a trip down Oxford Street for a taste of Southampton’s culinary delights and some of the most popular bars in the city. -weight: 400;">Dancing Man Brewery


The marina is managed and owned by Marina Developments Limited, a division of British-based Yattendon Investment Trust. The area, formerly used for commercial ships, offers 375 berths and the basin is deep enough to provide mooring facilities for tall ships and large yachts. The Global Challenge yacht races started from here in 1992, 1996 and 2000, and the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race set sail from here in 2011. Ocean Village was also the base for the Royal Southampton Yacht Club until 2018.
