Watching the Liners

Mayflower Park is a great place to watch the World go by. Have always been fascinated by the various liners leaving/arriving. A wonderful sight on any day.

Pleasant waterside area with great views of the massive cruise ships docked nearby. Amazing photo opportunities. Fresh air and pleasant grounds. Nice focal point for a visit.

Lovely walk and some pretty views, but very tired looking. Crumbling tarmac and lots of litter about.

It is not well known by many locals and not know by many Americans that come here that the Mayflower actually sailed from Southampton. The park is a memorial to this event. A boat sprang a leak and called into Plymouth for repairs. This is why some many places in New England have Hampshire names!

We often visit to see the cruise ships at the city terminal. As a child I remember a fantatic play area we used to visit regularly but due to new Health and Safety laws there now is only a small playground which is not as fun as the one in the 70s!

Great big ships get moored, not very far away, getting filled with people, going on holiday, they get packed with people and luggage, hats sunglasses and shoes, the lucky holidayers.. going on a cruise, the park is good for children, playing whilst the parents laze, and it's really rather nice, I'm sure you'll be full of praise

Near the centre of Southampton and cheap parking (£1 for 2 hours). Not a lot here, grass and views across docks, good kiosk and toilets, which are not going to win Loo of the Year! However good for blowing the cobwebs away and interesting if any liners are in.
