Travel information

Portsmouth Car Ferry Terminal Car Park Closure – now closed to season ticket holders
Portsmouth <> Fishbourne, Portsmouth <> Ryde
Tuesday, 13 September, 2016 - Saturday, 1 July, 2017

Commencing 13 September 2016 the car park at Gunwharf Road will be closed to the public throughout improvements works at Portsmouth Car Ferry Terminal.

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 terminal. 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.

Where are the nearest alternative car parks?
The closest car parks are at Gunwharf Quays (7 minute walk) and Wickham street (11 minute walk)
