  • "Short But Enjoyable"

    Took the passenger ferry to Ryde from Portsmouth. Only 30 mins but the craft was tidy and crew friendly. Only negative is finding the ferry offices (Portsmouth) especially as construction works meant any signage was not very clear. However still enjoyed the experience. The Ryde side was good bt remember the 1 mile walk along the pier great in good weather.
