According to a tweet by Brittany Ferries, work began yesterday (Tuesday) at Plymouth Ferry Port where Vehicle Charging Points are being installed. There is currently no estimate on when these will be available to use. Hopefully the same will happen in Portsmouth in the very near future.
Although next year’s sailing schedule hasn’t been released yet I fear we Plymouth ferry users need to brace ourselves for a poor service again this winter. Today I called the holiday reservations team to price up a winter sun break in Spain leaving Plymouth mid October and returning from Santander in mid November. Unfortunately I was told that there will not be any sailings on the Plymouth Santander route this November as the Pont will be covering for the Cap on the Portsmouth route. Not sure when the Plymouth Santander service normally ends for the winter but I know it was running on the 21st November 2016 as we were booked on it. Ah well, an extra 5 hours chugging up the channel followed by an extra 3.5 hours driving home.
For an excellent view over Plymouth Sound, the city and across to Dartmoor for a small fee you may ascend the spiral staircase within Devonport Column to access the viewing gallery.. It can be quite bracing up there. Before climbing the base steps to the foot of the column remember to collect your entry pass from the community bakery in the Guildhall (next to the column). http://www.devonportguildhall.org/visit/column/
