Boat show tomorrow

Hi, I'm going to the boat show tomorrow, does anyone have a suggestions for parking?

I went 3 years ago and remembered that there was a park and ride, but looking on the show website I cant see anything that mentioned it.

I'll be coming down the M3 by the way.

thanks Richard

We are going on Sunday too.

We used to use the Park and ride, but it's not been available for a couple of years now.

Being Sunday we will park for free at Fareham train station then get a family ticket to Southampton. Last year the train ticket was cheaper than parking in Southampton and there is a free bus from the station to the show.

Easiest way to do it is park at Swanick Marina and get the Premier Marina shuttle bus to the show site. It's all free

Can you leave the boat (6.6m Rib) at Swanwick Marina ?

We were on the water yesterday just off the Boatshow, and it's frustrating there isn't anywhere there that you can moor up and go in. I really think they should encourage more people to arrive by boat.
Wouldn't be difficult, just a few extra pontoons.

I'll be going over on Friday, but stupidly I'll have to catch the ferry from the Isle of Wight, rather than take my rib
