Ferry prices & Parking
The Ferry crossing is £8.50 each way, this includes your bike that goes free. Parking is £8.00 for up to 16 hours, or £10.00 for up to 24hrs
The car parks at Lymington are managed independently by Smart Parking. Customers have the first 20 minutes free to drop off but must buy a ticket if staying longer than this.
You can pay for your parking of up to three days using the RingGo app on your phone, meaning you no longer need to put tickets on your windscreen. You can even extend your session through your phone if you plan on staying a little longer.
Alternatively, you can use the designated ticket machines in the car parks to pay with either card or cash for up to 24 hours parking. Only customers purchasing parking for more than 24 hours with a credit or debit card or cash will be able to do so at a Wightlink Ticket Office.
People have struggled in the past to get CHANGE from the café, so please make sure that you bring enough change for parking. You don’t want to miss the boat for the sake of a few coins
