British Marine, organisers of the Southampton International Boat Show, strive to make the event as accessible as possible.

There is a reduced admission price for visitors who are registered disabled.


Wheelchairs will be available for hire on the day from the show entrance subject to availability (manual wheelchairs only). Visitors will need to go to a cashier on arrival at the show to request to hire. Availability cannot be guaranteed and a deposit will be required.


Dogs are permitted access into the show, however access onto the Marina will be restricted at busy times. No other animals will be admitted to the show.

Accessible Entrance

We issue wristbands at Show entrance upon arrival which does not allow re-entry to the Show, however will allow leaving the ground to access through an accessible entrance. With this wristband you will be able to use pathways to get around the Show instead of using the bridges. Please visit the Box Office when you arrive to obtain your wristband.

Disabled Facilities 

We have disabled toilets on site. Further information on their locations will be available shortly. Disabled parking is available at the West Quay multi storey car-park.
