It's been about 20 years since I used a ferry service to go across the Channel, and the last time I did that, I experienced a very rough crossing on a very antiquated old ferry! So I must admit to being a little anxious boarding the ferry to the Isle of Wight earlier this month. However, I needn't have worried at all because the Directferries Wightlink journey I had was as easy as you like - quick and hassle-free boarding with the car, nice and comfortable on deck during the journey, and just as easy and hassle-free getting off on the other side. In fact, I can't wait to take my son on the ferry again when we go back to the Isle of Wight in October! Looks like I've finally rediscovered my Sailing Shoes again .... Happy days!

The city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England in the county of Hampshire. The city, which lies on the English Channel coast, has a long and illustrious maritime history and has connections with the Royal Navy that goes back centuries. The city was also one of the world's greatest shipbuilding centres and constructed the world's first ever dry dock in the 15th century, which is still in use today. The city is still an important base for the Royal Navy and is home to a number of important historical ships including the crowning glory of Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory.
Portsmouth was significantly bombed during the Second World War because of its strategic importance, and as a result the city is a mix of old and new buildings with some of the most historic areas being the Hard and the Point. The nearby suburb of Southsea is a popular destination for families and has a lovely stretch of beach, two piers and a good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and a theme park at Clarence Pier.
Ferry services from the city's port depart to Le Havre, Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, St Malo, St Helier, St Peter Port and Ryde.
