British Marine, organisers of the Southampton Boat Show, strive to make the event as accessible as possible.
There is a reduced admission price for visitors who are registered disabled.
Please book in advance (only), by contacting Southampton Voluntary Services to reserve a wheelchair (manual and electronic available) on 02380 631 263. Alternatively you can hire a wheelchair 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.
Assistance Dogs are permitted access into the Show, however access onto the Marina may be restricted at busy times. No other animals will be admitted to the Show.
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.
We have disabled toilets on site, situated in the Arena area, Holiday Inn, Solent Park and 2 in Mayflower Park. Also, disabled parking is available at the West Quay multi storey car-park.
