"Travelling with my Mother"
Took my 97 year old mother to a special birthday celebration on the island. She is blind and uses a wheelchair. The loading crew ensured we were parked in an area easy for us to leave and return to the vehicle and for me to unload/load the wheelchair. Courteous and helpful staff. I did phone before travelling to explain our situation and also mentioned it when checking in. The whole process was stress and trouble free. Highly recommended.

The English city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England, in the county of Hampshire. It is the UK's only island city and is situated around 100 km to the south west of London and 30 km to the east of Southampton. The city's long history is inextricably linked to the sea. It is home to the oldest dry dock in the world still in use and also to famous ships such as HMS Victory, Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, the Mary Rose and HMS Warrior. The city is also home to the Royal Marine Commandoes and to a naval base.
The city's port is one of the best connected ports in the United Kingdom, serving nine different destinations. To the south of the Naval Base, you will find the Isle of Wight (Ryde) Passenger Ferry Terminal. The Continental Ferry Terminal is served by ferry services to Le Havre in France and Bilbao in Spain. There are also daily crossings to Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo in France, St Helier in Jersey, St Peter Port in Guernsey and to Ryde on the Isle of Wight.
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.
