Cycling

It’s easy to cycle to Portsmouth International Port. We’re just off National Cycle Network Route 22, and the majority of the cycle route to the Port from Portsmouth and Southsea train station is on a shared-use cycle path. See the map below for the route, which takes about 10 minutes at an easy pace. We’ve also got bike racks at the terminal building and by our car lanes where you can park your bike. Bikes are not permitted within the terminal building.

If you want to take your bike on your trip, there is more information from Brittany Ferries and Condor Ferries available online.
