    We were booked on this crossing and the ticket cost is no more, but it means two nights on the ferry and the need to spend more money in the not cheap restaurants!
    That is unless you want to be a miser and take sandwiches etc!

    The ferry sails at 22:30 so no food needed before bedtime. Then a whole day's meals and arrival 07:45 the following morning - so no breakfast needed until after disembarkation. Especially if the weather is rough! I think I will be taking a kettle into the cabin in any case.

    As mentioned you can park after last ferry has left, but this could be after 11pm.

    We like a bit of peace & quiet & to relax early evening after popping out to the pub.

    We use Portsmouth CU1 at 50.815709 -1.090989 for a good night’s kip.

    It’s also only 3mins from the ferry.

    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    You obviously didn’t put the minus symbol (-) before the second figure.

    Carol, for your Garmin, if you put N before the first figure & W (instead of the minus symbol) before the second figure, you can’t go wrong.

    The minus symbol denotes west of the Greenwich Meridian Line which is “0”, on the other side of this you would obviously put in the “E”
