A Green Flag award winning park, Palmerston is possibly the most seen of the central parks, being the only point where the parks actually meet the busy Above Bar Street. A densley planted park, it looks beautiful in the spring and summer.

The Viscount Palmerston Memorial sits within the park; statue of former Prime Minster the 3rd Viscount Palmerston. Standing over seven feet high on a marble and granite plinth, it had remained in Palmerston park since its erection in June 1869.

The Bandstand - built as a result of public demand - was completed in 1999. The original cast iron bandstand, erected in 1885, was sited further to the north of the park and was removed in 1940 as a result of bomb damage was.

Tours
01590 646635 01590 646635

Take an open-top safari with grandstand views of the scenery, animals and villages of the New Forest National Park.

Tours run daily from 27th June to 13th September, with a choice of three routes: Red (the wild northwest), Green (the beautiful southeast) and Blue (the coastal southwest).

Unique view

From the top deck you'll enjoy tree-top views of the National Park, with roaming animals, wide open heaths and ancient forest.

Special audio commentaries tell the stories of the people and places of the New Forest - with characters, sounds and music bringing the view to life.

On the open-top Tours you'll get a birds eye view of the landscape and a better chance of spotting the beautiful animals of the New Forest - including deer and rare birds, pigs and donkeys, and of course the famous ponies.

Hope on and off all day

You can hop-on and hop-off wherever you like and catch another bus later on - or switch between Tour routes - all on the same ticket.

Walk or cycle part of the way and then jump back on the Tour (up to four bikes carried free). There's a great network of cycling and walking tracks.

There are easy bus, train and ferry links to the New Forest from surrounding towns and cities with free bus and ferry travel on some routes.

Red Route

Lyndhurst – Burley – Ringwood – Fordingbridge – Sandy Balls – Ashurst– New Forest Wildlife Park – Lyndhurst

The Red Route takes you around the fragrant heaths and scattered woodland of the wild northern part of the New Forest National Park, through the storybook village of Burley and the historic towns of Ringwood and Fordingbridge...

Green Route

Lyndhurst – Brockenhurst – Lymington – Beaulieu – Exbury Gardens– Hythe Ferry – Lyndhurst

The Green Route explores the charming south east of the New Forest National Park including Beaulieu - with its historic abbey, Palace House and National Motor Museum - and Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway...

Blue Route

Lymington – Brockenhurst – Burley – New Milton – Barton-on-Sea – Milford-on-Sea– Keyhaven – Lymington

The Blue Route is your gateway to the beautiful beaches and coastal scenery in the south west of the New Forest National Park - the nature reserve at Keyhaven, the ferry to Hurst Castle and views across to the Needles...

By rail - Southampton Central is the closest train station, approximately 2 miles from Ocean Terminal. While a free bus runs between Town Quay and the station, it does stop a good 15-20 minute walk away.

Fully licensed taxi ranks are available either side of the station, with plenty of clearly designated areas for pre-booked taxis to wait. It should cost around £6 - £7, but may cost more on weekends and bank holidays. Luggage shouldn't cost any extra.

The nearest airport is Southampton. Taxi's are the quickest route to the Port if you are flying in, however trains are also frequent and fairly cheap.

Private hire taxis can be booked by calling WestQuay Cars on 023 8099 9999.

Dropping Off Your Luggage:

There's no need to worry if you're unsure; with clear signage and staff on hand, every step of the way has been thoroughly thought out. As you approach the terminal, to your left is the baggage handling area. Drop-off is located adjacent. Porters are quick to help with your luggage. If parking, you will need to bring your luggage over to this area yourself.

Where to Park:

Short stay parking, located just behind the coach bays, is to your right as you face the terminal. Starting at £1 per hour, prices rise to £10 for 24 hours. A lost of damaged ticket will set you back a whopping £100, so make sure to keep it safe.

Long stay parking is situated behind the short stay car park. It's not available on the day, so don't leave booking a space until the last moment. Your travel agent or cruise operator should be able to book this for you.

A Quick Note for Smokers:

The terminal is No Smoking throughout. As you approach the terminal from the car parks, the designated smoking area is just in front of you, to the right hand side. Remember to use the bin provided, as littering in the UK has an £80 on the spot fine.

Heading In To the Terminal:

Things can look a little hectic when you first arrive. Two large doors frame the front of the building. Both sets lead into the same reception area, so there’s no need to worry about entering the wrong end. Seating for 100-150 is located downstairs. If you are waiting for a family member or friend to park, it’s a good idea to take a few minutes to wait and relax down here.

What to do Whilst Waiting:

A large magazine stand can be found in the window. Filled with a wide range of high-quality glossy magazines, these are complimentary, with issues changing throughout the year. A Map & Guide to the city is also available from here. It is located just before you exit through the door on the left.

Travel agents set up information stands downstairs for some cruises. They're not always there, but terminal staff are usually easy to spot and are always helpful.

A bank of three vending machines can be found just past the seating, along with a free water cooler.

Grabbing a Bite to Eat:

Café Ceanos offer a range of refreshments in the departure lounge, with a good selection of food and drink available. Fresh tea and coffee are available for the early starts, and why not grab a hot bacon bap for just £3. Smaller snacks start at 95p, sandwiches £2.95 and beef burgers costing £3.25 are also available.

For those wishing to start their holidays early alcoholic beverages are also available. With single spirits and beers ranging from £2.50 - £3.75, and champagne costing between £18.50 - £30 for a half or full bottle.

Where You Need to Go:

Standard and disabled access toilets are located on both floors. Mother and baby changing facilities are upstairs, towards the back of the terminal.

Check In:

For this, you will need to head upstairs. An escalator, stairs and a lift are available. Check-in staff will be on hand to guide you to where you need to go.

Priority check-in takes up the first 3-5 desks, with a separate queue clearly marked. Around 30-40 desks are available in total.

Waiting to Board:

Seating for approximately 1,000 fills the majority of the first floor. Windows line the left hand wall, allowing a glimpse of your ship as luggage is loaded and passengers already on-board mill around on their balconies. Additional complimentary magazines are available towards the centre, just past Café Ceano.

With wi-fi unavailable, the nearest hotspot is Ocean Village. You can always wait until you board, as most ships have internet access.

Priority seating is sectioned off towards the far end of the terminal upstairs; P&O’s Peninsular Club members can use this section prior to boarding.

Useful to Know:

There are no pay phones anywhere near the terminal, however mobile phone signal stays strong throughout. For any last-minute postcards or mail, the nearest postbox is in Oxford Street or the town centre.

The terminal is fully accessible throughout for passengers with mobility issues. Disabled parking is available right beside the front door. Disabled access toilets are located on both floors, with a 46 person capacity lift with extra-wide doors for easy access.
