    Returning home to Portsmouth in November. We arrive the Wednesday evening BEFORE our Bilbao Thursday 3.30pm sailing. Can we overnight on the port or do they only allow overnight parking on the early morning 8.30am sailings?
    Any overnight stop close to port if overnighting is not permitted would be also appreciated. Many Thanks!

    Ditto previous reply. However if you fancy spending a day in Bilbao there is a good wild spot we found earlier this year.
    We had details of an aire just outside the city but they wanted 16 euros a night. It was next to a big free public car park so we decided to wild it for a couple of days in the car park along with a few other vans (mostly German).
    The day we left it looked like they were closing the aire - office boarded up, gates padlocked. I'm not surprised at the price they were charging.
    The Police came by a couple of times but didn't seem bothered.
    There are no facilities so make sure you arrive with a full water tank and empty toilet cassette!
    The car park is actually in a great place on top of a hill overlooking the city. The No58 bus passes by which will take you into the city - you want the bus stop on the opposite side of the road to the car park ie travelling to right to left as you look at the city. It's about 30 minutes to the nearest point to the Guggenheim. Basically you get off the bus when you cross the river and walk about a mile along the river bank to the museum. It's a pleasant walk.
