Wightlink are now unable to sell Parking season tickets until late summer. This is because parking and space at our car park will be extremely limited over the next stage of our terminal improvement works.

Alternative parking is available at our Lymington terminals. We will advise passengers if we’re aware of any alternative parking arrangements that can be made.

We’re very sorry for the inconvenience this will cause.
