    Hi all, our ferry arrives in Portsmouth from Bilbao at 20.15 hrs, depending on immigration checks could be 21.00hrs or later before we clear the port. Looking for somewhere safe to stay overnight before travelling North the following morning. Anyone have any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Maybe Port Solent just up the road.

    I do a lot of work in Port Solent and heard they are looking at ways to stop overnighters. I am certain the parking signs state no sleeping.

    Was fine we we stayed overnight in April, initially parked in one of the Marina car parks then one of the port security men came and spoke to us said we were fine to stay there but suggested it might be better to move to the car park behind the sports centre and restaurants, this was due to the number of nails in the marina car park from the chocks of wood used to cradle the yachts when out of the water. He was a very pleasant chap and we had a good night no probs in the car park, had fun watching the stressed gym bunnies arrive after work in their mercs and BMWs dressed in designer gym kit:LOL:

    Thanks all for your input, our travelling companions booked a "ferry" pitch at Rookesbury Park Caravan Club site so swimbo has done the same. They have 7 ferry pitches complete with ehu and tv booster hook ups in a separate enclose for one night use only for those going or coming from ferries. Must be booked direct with the site. Handy to know.
