Southampton Maritime Festival

The Festival will once again be taking over the docks and water within Dock Gate 4 to bring you a whole host of activities and attractions that hark back to Southampton’s past.
In a bumper year of historical commemorations including 100 years since the start of the First World War, 70 years since the D-Day landings and 50 years celebrating Southampton’s city status, the event offers an unrivalled opportunity to step back in time into our region’s history - you can even dress up in the part!

You'll be able to see and visit many historic ships and vessels and see what life was like living and working on board.
On land you can explore a large number of displays and demonstrations over the course of two days. The quayside will be packed with exhibits including historic cars, steam exhibits, heritage trams whilst Southampton’s Ocean Terminal will house many heritage and art exhibits, craft fairs and traders.
Heritages buses will once again provide a shuttle service to the docks from the city centre throughout the event.
