SOUTHAMPTON DOCKS and HARBOUR
Southampton is the only Port in Great Britain where deep water loading and discharging berths can be reached at any time of the day or night, irrespective of the state of the tide.
There are double tides at the Port, and practically Four Hours of High Water. In addition to the usual high water there is a second, about two hours later, and some six inches higher, allowing vessels to come out of the graving docks and others to enter on the same tide.
Passengers have every convenience and facility. Special Trains from Waterloo Station, London, run direct into the Docks alongside the Mail Steamers on days of sailing, and vice versa on arrivals.
The fullest facilities exist for coaling steamers both from Rail or Collier. Railway wagons run from South Wales and other collieries direct to Ship's side.
An additional Dry Dock, the largest single Graving Dock in the World, 750 feet long by 87J feet wide at sill, and 91 feet wide at cope, level, is now completed and open for business.
