How do I get to Albert Road, Southsea?
Portsmouth is a very well connected city with great public transport routes. We believe this is the best way to travel into the city – you’ll be avoiding the traffic and helping the environment!
Portsmouth is a beautiful seafront city and is very flat! If you are able to walk to the festival we fully recommend strolling to the event on Southsea Seafront.
Cycling has never been so popular! Why not cycle to the festival?! There are plenty of bike railings scattered throughout Southsea.
Please remember – don’t drink and cycle!
**please note while guards will be patrolling the area – bikes are still left at the owners risk**
There are regular trains from London Waterloo and Victoria which bring you straight into the centre of Portsmouth stopping at the following stations: Fratton, Portsmouth & Southsea and Portsmouth Harbour.
From Fratton, Albert Road is a 15 minute walk (approx.) Alternatively there are regular buses and many taxis in the area that can take you direct to the seafront.
Please make sure you check train times before you travel!
