Southampton fireworks

Hi All,

Has anyone tried going along to either of the "big" Southampton fireworks shows by rib?! This year Victoria Country Park on the 2nd and Mayflower park on the 9th.

I know mayflower park is fired from a barge which will presumably have some exclusion zone around it but guessing its possible to anchor opposite (out of the channel) and watch?

Victoria Country Park - is that visible from the water?

Any good tips anyone?
