The tidal data shown here is for Calshot Castle. Please make the required time adjustments for other areas of the Hamble.
Named after the river by which it sits the beautiful maritime village of Hamble is an absolute Mecca for the pleasure boat and yachting fraternity. With over 800 acres of unspoilt countryside easily explored via the river and the Solent providing access to the delightful south Coast of England and the Isle of Wight it is no wonder that sailors and water sport fanatics flock there in their thousands during the summer months. The wonderful climate, abundant moorings and excellent marine facilities are but a bonus.

And what of the delightful village itself. Well you would certainly be hard pressed to find many places quite as endearing. The focal point is the 16th century square with it’s famous Village Tea Rooms (formerly a coffin and rope makers) and the Compass Point Café housed in an 18th century fisherman’s cottage. Wander along the quay and admire the wonderful views or take a cruise down the river, take in the breathtaking surroundings and call at the legendary Elephant Boatyard.

The unspoilt countryside of the Hamble Valley is the perfect place for walking and picnics. Filled with attractions and picturesque villages it is also a great place from which to discover the New Forest and nearby cities of Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester. After a busy day sightseeing what could be better than returning to the tranquillity of the village itself, enjoying a lovely meal and relaxing with your favourite tipple.

One of the most idyllic getaways in Britain, Hamble is a place of warm welcomes, sincere hospitality and genuine magic.

Glad to hear you are updating Hamble in June. We find your guides very informative, especially the accommodation page, as many marina guides dont appreciate the importance of having choices of hotels camp sites, B&Bs etc in the vicinity of where thier boat is moored.Keep up the good work.

In refference to new to area Josh about Riggers, Chumley's are one of the best in the area and know this from my own dealings with them.

Was persuaded by a close friend to join Seastart this year, and within a week of joining had to use them.
Unfortunately or fortunately as the case may be we have had to call 8th em again.
Anyway money well spent and would suggest anyone to join Seastart immediately .

Pascoe's attention to detail in their ribs is second to none.
We were visiting a friend in Universal Marina over the weekend and they took us out for a test drive so to speak.
Not sure if they get any money if we buy one, but the rib spoke for itself.
Absolute perfection in everyway.
I'm sure we will be visiting our friend more often for more convincing.joke
My wife and i have since been talking about visiting the Pascoe ( LAB ) in the Hamble where if i have my way, we will not be leaving on foot and if anyone has more Pascoe info let us know.

Planning a sailing trip around the Solent this summer, and we intend to be spending a few days in and around Southampton and the Hamble area. We use your guides quite a lot, as we can normally find a wide range of services we need(Not just marine) ie near by cash points, WIFI services etc. Will Hamble be updated this summer??

Been sailing round the Med for the last 8 years, and now ready to return to Blighty. Been looking through your website for inspiration, and having looked at many of your guides, think we have decided on the Hamble. We have not been to Hamble for maybe 15 years but looking at this page brought back a lot of extremely fond memories. For this we would like to say thank you.

Wow!! Just rediscovered your website as we was looking for some marine services in Hamble, and you popped up..It was some time ago now but when we last used this guide it was for a rigging service as we were about to cross the Bay of Biscay for the first time>> We used Chumley Prime Rigging, his knowledge and service was invaluable to us.Glad to see he is still there. Just wanna say THANKS!

Just found Hamble Cover Service on your site, I have managed to contact them, but I think their information may need updating as they now have a new website.
Love your site by the way.

Just sailed into the Hamble, and as usual logged on to Harbourguides to get some info. Its been helpful but I have to say that it does need updating. I always use your guides when visiting an area as they give an all round service. but come on guys get back to the Hamble and update soon!

Hi Gaz
We try to get each and every one of our Harbourguides completely updated every two years and add and delete relevent information throughout this period...However because of the number of requests from our visitors to add new areas and harbours etc. we do find it that it is now taking us longer.We are in the process of recruiting more crew to overcome this.The good news is that we receive many emails from visitors to our site that help to keep us up to date

Brought the family to the Southampton Boat Show,Fabulous few days,decided to visit some places in Hamble and found your harbour guide very informative, some of the businesses were not there anymore though? How often do you update?

I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Warsash Marine by Brian
Not the people to deal with. Ordered a sump plug washer, visited 4 times, still no washer, apparently they were on stop with supplier as over credit limit. I spoke to the owner complaining I had visited 4 times & I was getting fed up & he swore at me & said he wasn't interested in selling a 50p washer?
I need a new 30hp motor & I won't be going there, I'd rather use oars first.
Avoid, unless your spending loads of money, then I'm sure they will be polite.
