About The Venue

Mayflower Park is a public park in Southampton, UK. It is constructed on land that has been reclaimed from flat flats during the 1930s. These lands originally housed the western docks with the location being known as the Royal Pier Recreation Ground.  The venue has been the hosting site of the Southampton Boat Show since 1969.

Mayflower Park was constructed on reclaimed land from mud flatlands in the 1930s. It was originally known as the Royal Pier Recreation Ground and at least until 1955, part of it was used as an illegal car parking site. During the same year, the park was renamed to Mayflower Park and refurbished. The name of the park is derived from the name of the historic ship Mayflower. It is the vessel on which the Pilgrim Fathers sailed in 1620 when travelling to America. The venue can be reached in 20 minutes by car from Southampton Airport.
