Southampton landings?

We need to nip over from Cowes and land in Southampton and get to the West Quay Centre. Where would be the best place to leave the RIB for a few hours? Ta.

I'd reccomend Town Quay - you'll have to fork out for a short stay I guess.

Yes. The Town Quay would be handy for the free bus to the West Quay.

Ocean village is the easiest. you can get short stay there for about 8 for four hours (I think)...

Going into town is a 5 min taxi/bus ride or a 25 min walk
