Accessible Entrance

Please use the exit of the West Quay car park leading onto Harbour Parade opposite the Hollywood Bowl to access the main entrance for the Southampton International Boat Show. On arrival, please speak to the Southampton International Boat Show security team when you arrive to obtain your accessible wristband. This wristband will allow you to exit GATE C and re-enter at GATE F to avoid the bridge over West Quay Road.


Disabled toilets are available in all toilet blocks at the Southampton International Boat Show.


Wheelchairs (manual only) are available to hire on a first come, first serve basis (and subject to availability) on the day from the box office at the main entrance of the Southampton international Boat Show. We cannot guarantee availability and a deposit will be required.


All dogs (including guide dogs) are permitted to access into the show. However, access onto the Marina, Ocean Hall and Catering areas will be significantly restricted at busy times (subject to the absolute discretion of the security team) and there are limited facilities available for your dog at the show.

Please note that dogs are not permitted in the Quayside Club Hospitality Lounge.
