Parking for Continental Ferries

by MelanieBee

Hi,

We are going to St Malo with Brittany Ferries in a couple of months. When we went to Bilbao in 2007 we parked right next door to the ferry terminal and the parking was surprisingly cheap. I checked a couple of the ferry operators' websites and they all point to the same parking company who charge £10 per day! I am assuming that they are talking about the same place we parked before.

Did I park somewhere else last time, or have they increased the prices by a whole lot?

Is there anywhere cheaper than this to safely park our car for 5 days?

Thanks in advance

You could ask the car park operator about the charges and changes ? They give a phone number for contact: 02392 873378

I wouldn't be surprised if the facility has changed because there is mention of : "The new multi-storey car park is located only a few meters from the main ferry terminal. It is well lit, secure and open 24 hours a day."

A new purpose built park costs money.

£10 per day is not unusual, to be honest.....look at how much airport parking is if you leave it late to book.

Brittany Ferries quotes the same (well, £12 per day but less for longer stays):

http://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/information/uk-ports-parking

Direct Ferries say:

There are short and long term car parking facilities opposite the ferry terminal in Gunwharf road. Prices are from £4.70 per day. When this car park is closed please use the alternative facilities in Queen Street.

Travel Tips for Portsmouth

Boats and Gunwharf Quays

by thisisbanane

I haven't been to Portsmouth for a long time, but the obvious tip is to go and see the HMS Victory. Pay an extortionate sum and you will be able to go onboard and then wander around the museum where they also have the Mary Rose.

While in Portsmouth you should also go to Gunwharf Quays, a HUGE discount shopping centre. Lots of big names like Ralph Lauren, Jack Wills, kitchen shops, jewellery shops, etc at a fraction of the normal retail price. You may be faced by long queues for the car park on Saturdays.

Portsmouth Tip

by hayward68

Portsmouth was a place I'd always wanted to visit, as my Dad was based here with the Royal Navy before I was born. So it was very interesting for me to see this city, especially since my older brother was born in the area.

We arrived in Portsmouth about 3pm and immediately went wandering around doing some sightseeing. Eventually we checked into our bed and breakfast, a lovely place right near the water, then headed for the pubs. There were 3 within 200 yards of the B&B. It had been a beautiful, hot, sunny day and now we were ready to relax. We bought a few pints of beer and sat ourselves down on the patio of the Spice Island Inn. From our vantage point we could see the ferries going back and forth in the harbour and military planes flying overhead. We sat for a long time relaxing as the sun slowly set. It was such a peaceful time and one of the best parts of our trip.

A quick detour to Gosport

by jono84

Gosport is just a short 5minute ferry ride across the harbour, and offers more shopping opportunities, particularly on tuesdays when the highstreet fills to the brim with allsorts of market stalls and marquis.

There is also the Explosion naval museum in close proximity, which details the experiences and facts about World War II, as well as plenty of traditional outdoor-seated cafes and pubs......... truly a british town!!!

It is only £1.60 for an adult return across the harbour, so all the more reason to give Gosport a check out!!

You take the ferry from the pontoon alongside the Harbour Train Station, down from the Hard Interchange.

More thoughts...........
To me, Gosport really feels like a 'lived-in' city.... it doesn't try to hide its true character, and it may be a little tatty around the edges, but its proud to be a down-to-earth english town..... For that, i forgive it for its scruffy appearances in places.

Panini anyone?

by darkjedi about Gunwharf Quays: Bar 38

Bar 38, commanding a position at the corner to the entrance of Gunwharf Quays next to the Grosvenor Casino, is a bright, spacious modern bar with two floors. Downstairs the long stretched bar boasts a range of spirits and an equally extensive cocktail menu. Large, airy windows, comfortable sofa seating and an arty contemporary design give this venue a dose of style and upstairs offers a dancefloor and further secluded seating. Coffees and light snacks, an exciting mix of dishes from North Africa, Asia and the Mediterranean, and cocktails par excellence. Waiting times can be a bit too long though, definately need to make their staff move faster and not stand around chatting.

Walk on in, find a table, note the table number and walk up to the bar and order your food.

Great communal hand washer in the toilets upstairs. We liked the Chicken & Pasta and the Chicken Salad.

Portsmouth: The Historic...

by martin.lees

Portsmouth: The Historic Dockyard
Nelson's flagship at Trafalgar, HMS victory is the highlight for most, but HMS Warrior (the first Ironclad warship) and the Mary Rose are equally impressive. Set in the heart of the Royal Naval Dockyards there are also modern warships be seen around.
