Gosport

Gosport is a town in Hampshire, a short water ride away from Portsmouth. Although not a traditional destination, it does have some attractions if you are interested in maritime history.

Get in

By road

Leave the M27 at Junction 11 and follow the A32. Note that at rush hour, and sometimes at weekends, this is a busy road with long delays.

By ferry

The Gosport ferry across the harbour mouth is the most convenient way to get to Gosport from Portsmouth. An adult ticket costs £2.90 return, £1.90 for children or pensioners. Combination tickets are also available giving unlimited bus travel for a day in Hampshire. The website has details of ferry schedules and ticket pricing.
