The ferry port of Fishbourne in Isle of Wight is your gateway to England with the Fishbourne to Portsmouth ferry crossing running about 30 times per day. The Fishbourne to Portsmouth ferry route is operated by Wightlink and the sailing itself is from around 45 minutes.
On the north-western coast of the Isle of Wight, along one turfed bank of the Wootton Creek estuary, is the picturesque village of Fishbourne. This small, laid-back community is surrounded by typically British countryside; a landscape defined by a spring-green patchwork of fields and gentle hills, between which twist narrow lanes shaded by the leafy boughs of oak and ash trees.
The port of Fishbourne is found by the mouth of Wootton Creek that curves along one edge of the village. It’s little more than a narrow pier that points out from the estuary towards The Solent channel separating the island from the southern coast of the British mainland. There are very few facilities here, although a bar and toilets can be found at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club near the entrance to the port.
Getting to and from the port is easy due to Fishbourne’s location just a 5-minute drive from the island’s seaside capital of Ryde along the A3054. The Island Line, the most extensive train route on the isle, runs from the capital towards the settlements of the eastern region, most notably the town of Brading that sits close to the island’s Bembridge Airport.
Currently one ferry route runs from the port. Wightlink lines depart from the pier multiple times throughout the day, making the short trip north across The Solent to the sprawling harbour-side town of Portsmouth on the southern coast of England.
