PP: Porthsmouth 27 Jan

Postby Sarahrs » Fri 12 Jan 2018, 23:06

Welcome to the first Photo and Pub.

So the basic plan is head to Portsmouth which has lots of interesting things to photograph including the historic dock yards, a castle, and a beach. So lots to keep everyone snap happy even with the variable weather.

The proposed timings are:
9:34 train from east croydon to Portsmouth due to arrive 11:17. Journey time 1 hr 43.

Be in pub for about 4:15pm before heading to the train.

Going back it looks slightly quicker going via East Croydon

So head back on 17:24 train from Portsmouth and Southsea to Clapham Junction
19:13 train from Clapham junction to East Croydon for 19:22.

For those keen for a sunset, it is due at 16:47pm.

If the sunset is super and people want to stay a bit longer there is a direct train from Portsmouth and southsea to East Croydon at 17:59 and due back at EC by 20:04. Yes, there is a route going via Clapham Junction which leaves Portsmouth and Southsea at 17:50, change at Guildford and then change at CJ arrive back 19:52.

An off-peak day return is £29.80. The cost can be reduced by various travel cards including network rail, friends and two together tickets.
The Historic Dockyard all attraction ticket is £28 if booked on-line ohterwise it is £18 to vist the boat of your choice including the Mary Rose. For more infomation see: http://www.historicdockyard.co.uk/tickets-and-offers. you can get disounted entry with the Art Fund card and keep an eye out for Groupon deals.

Thanks for all the info Sarah. Im interested in coming along but would probably prefer the 0834 train to give more daylight whilst there. I also have a Gold Card which gives 1/3 off for upto 4 adults if this helps other members.

Sorry to hear that Sarah. However, Im still happy to head down there for those that want to join me.

Chris/Others - I will be at East Croydon at 8:15 to catch the 8:34. I will also be purchasing the Historic Dockyard all attraction ticket as well. Its valid for a year so will no doubt return at some point.
