The ferry from Southampton to Hythe (The Hythe Ferry!) is a fabulous excursion for any visitor to Southampton. A 15 minute boat trip on what seems like an old tug, past a liner if you’re lucky, and then to the end of a 600 metre pier and on to a clunky old train along the pier (or you can walk it). The small town of Hythe is in need of updating, but that’s not what you come for – you come for the ride!
There is a rather good website for the ferry – http://www.hytheferry.co.uk.
I make no excuse for the large pictures below (click them for even bigger ones), nor for the extreme image enhancements. This blog is for my enjoyment and I like how the images have come out. I was using my old point-and-shoot camera, so JPG enhancements were very much necessary. I just went a bit far with the arty-farty stuff!
