Portsmouth Fishbourne Ferry reviews

  • "The Away Game"

    As a regular travelers on the Wightlink ferry, (usually accompanied by a squad of under 12 Gosport & Fareham rugby players and the entourage of Mums and Dads). I find the service and the staff excellent. From the point of booking to the travel its self everything is easy and hassle free. Online booking is simple to use and easy to navigate. Prices are reasonable and information is always accurate and timely. if service, price and comfort are your main requirements then I would recommend you travel with Wightlink ferries.

Fishbourne Guide

The small port and village of Fishbourne is located on the Isle of Wight and lies on the east bank of the Wootton Creek, between the village of Wootton and Ryde. The village derives its name from "stream of fish" or "fish spring". Vectis is the ancient Roman name for the Isle of Wight, which is a county and the largest island in England that sits in the English Channel around 7 km off the coast of Hampshire, on the English mainland. The narrow stretch of water separating the Isle of Wight from the mainland is called The Solent. The island has been an popular tourist destination since Victorian times.

Passengers arriving at Fishbourne's harbour with a car must do so at least 30 minutes prior to departure, but no more than 1 hour before. Foot passengers must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to departure. The port has a terminal to accommodate the ferry, operated by Wightlink, to Portsmouth located across the Solent on the UK mainland.
