Map of Eastern Docks

The Eastern Docks cover over 60 acres (24 hectares) and provide nearly 3 miles (6 km) of quayside. They consist of four dock areas as well as many riverside quays and were opened in stages between 1842 and 1911. Handling cargo and passengers from all over the world, most of Southampton`s traffic passed through the Eastern Docks until 1934 when the Western Docks opened.

The maps in this section show Southampton as it was in 1944.
