Why more people don't do the day trip from southampton to Hythe, for a look around and a cuppa combined with a nice trip over the water and a pier train ride is unclear. It is something any visitor to Southampton should do

Living in Hythe, this ferry service is excellent way to cross over to Southampton, avoiding all traffic and parking fees on other side. Love the little train and the service is very reliable and love the little boat trip as well.
