Hythe Pier opened in January 1881 and at 2,100 feet (640 metres), the iron pier is one of the longest in the British Isles. In 1922 a narrow gauge electric railway was built to take passengers the full length of the pier, the original engine and rolling stock is still being used today. In 2003 a dredger hit the pier and cut it in two, it was later discovered the master had been drinking and was subsequently jailed. Just prior to the incident the Hythe ferry had landed 235 people on the pier. The Hythe Ferry operates a half hourly service between Hythe Pier and Town Quay Southampton.
