Hythe Pier train


The little port of Hythe, on the fringes of the New Forest opposite Southampton, boasts the world’s oldest pier train – a wonderful contraption dating back to 1922, which rattles down a 2,100-foot-long pier to a ferry terminal at the end. The train ride alone is worthwhile, though it is also fun to catch the regular ferries across Southampton Water. A shuttle bus then ferries passengers to Southampton’s main shopping centre.
