    This is safe with Security guards around through the night and only a couple of hundred yards from my house

    I phoned Brittany last week to book a crossing and was told not able to park on port before midnight for 8am sailing, so am now going to go Dover Calais as can stay at Canterbury park and Ride night before.

    Goes to Bilbao and is £80 cheaper than Santander, but we are going via Dover now at end of month on route to Benicarlo rally. Another reason for not going on Brittany is the fact that a few crossings have been cancelled this month.

    I'm sorry I never looked back at this thread......Yes there are toilets but I believe they close them at around 6 (18.00) and reopen them around 6 (06.00), however there are more toilets and showers at the Sunsail sailing headquarters (marked), though they will need a code to get into.

    It is quite common for Motor Homes to overnight there amongst the boats as the owners who are titivating their boats often come from their homes and overnight in a motorhome. They even plug into the electric points strewn around.

    Toilets this is Portsmouth we can not afford them any moor so they have shut most down,

    But we do have a nice cycle lane along the seafront that cost a fortune and is dangers.

    As for parking you can park along the seafront lots do over night.

    Found parking Brill! Saw a couple of security guards who advised us where to park, no problem. At present having pint in. Weatherspoons on Boardwalk couldn't be better.
