This annual event (51st!) which sees around 100,000 visitors arriving over a 10 day period starts on Friday 13th September and runs until Sunday 22nd September 2019. Expect to see all the usual faces in the usual places plus Andark's TryDive pool is back if you want to try your hand at a spot of SCUBA. It's usually pretty busy for parking so try and come par la train, Southampton Central is not far from the show. If you do drive there are quite a few car parks near to the venue but in my experience these tend to fill up with exhibitor cars and shoppers but you may get lucky. Avoid NCP and they have a habit of hiking the price for the show period, and the Podium car park is expensive too. Try West Quay Shopping Centre multi-story it's normally £5.00 for the day and it the nearest to the show entrance but this does get busy. Premier marinas will be running their usual park and ride service from Swanwick Marina. It costs £14.99 and includes a complementary show ticket and return journey.
