Taxi Transfer from Gatwick to Portsmouth Harbour
There are various ways of getting a Gatwick to Portsmouth Harbour transfer. You can opt to travel by train, coach or by private hire vehicles. All of these services offer a direct connection between these 2 destinations, so all you have to do is choose the one that best suits your needs and budget. With the train and the coach, you must bear in mind that they don’t stop in the cruise terminals, so, from the bus or train station, you will most probably have to get a taxi ride of approximately 10 minutes. The taxi transfer is the only transport method that will take you directly to the cruise terminal your cruise ship departs from.
Gatwick to Portsmouth Harbour Transfer by Coach
You will have two major bus routes departing from Gatwick and going to Portsmouth Port. The first one changes at Heathrow Airport and it will take longer and the second one is a direct service between the airport and the port going along the south coast. There are various services throughout the day. The tickets cost between £7.30 and £15.20 and you can pay less if you book online. The fastest ride will be 1 hour and 36 minutes, but usually a Gatwick to Portsmouth Harbour transfer takes around 1 hour and 50 minutes.
If you choose to buy a return ticket, you will pay even less. This makes the coach tickets much cheaper than the train tickets. However, the journey with the National Express buses will last longer than it would normally last with the train service.
Gatwick to Portsmouth Harbour Transfer by Train
Since we have been talking about the rail service, let’s see what it has to offer. There is a train station only in the Gatwick South Terminal, but there will be a shuttle transferring you from North to South Terminal in case you land on the former. This shuttle train departs every 5 minutes, so it is quite frequent. A journey with the shuttle train will last around 4 minutes.
From Gatwick Airport South Terminal, you can simply take the National Rail Service that will take you directly to Portsmouth Port. The only disadvantage is that this service runs hourly, so if you don’t catch the train in time, you will be forced to wait almost an hour for the other. This can be quite exasperating and frustrating. However, if you do choose this option, you should know that your journey will last around one hour and 25 minutes. The price for this transfer will be approximately £33. You can purchase tickets online or from the ticket desks inside the terminal. Unlike the coach tickets, if you buy a train ticket in advance, you won’t be paying less if the journey takes only one hour or so. This service is available only for longer train rides.
