Leave the M27 at junction 8. Proceed to the large roundabout and take the 2nd exit signed the B3397 to Hamble Le Rice. Tesco’s Super store will be on your left. The B3397 is a long straight road with a couple of mini roundabouts, go straight over each roundabout continuing into Hamble Village. Hamble train station, junior school and the red harrier aircraft will be on your right. This will be followed immediately afterwards by a left hand bend in the road and a small parade of shops on the right.

Hamble FIRE STATION will also be on your right. Take the first right hand turn after this, into COPSE LANE. It is sign-posted HAMBLE POINT MARINA. Follow the lane through a housing estate and a nature reserve. The marina is situated at the very end.

Once in the marina, follow the road round to the left. Our office and reception can be found on the ground floor of the large building SALTMAKERS HOUSE, opposite the Ketch Rigger marina bar.

 Hamble Point Marina (HPM) has secure free parking for cars and motor cycles. 



If you are travelling from London, we recommend the fast service from Waterloo to Southampton Airport Parkway. This is about the same distance as Southampton Central Station. Taxis are readily available outside the station and will cost around £22 to the marina. The journey will take approximately 15-20 minutes.

From Southampton Central station, there is an hourly stopping service to Hamble.  See Details
