You’ll be fine going over the ferry that way in the morning but if it gets much past 11 for coming back and the sun is shining I’d come back round the road way (Wareham/Corfe Castle). Be busy either way but at least you’ll be moving coming round the road instead of sitting in a queue! 👿Posted 4 years agobentandbrokenMember
Just a thought for if its sunny (when it will be busiest)
Drive to the chain-link ferry (Swanage side) and park up
Go over on the ferry on foot and then catch an open-top bus to Poole bus station hoping off at the civil center roundabout for the Parkrun
To return either jump back on a bus or walk across the park to Poole Quay and catch the Brownsea ferry making sure you get the one that stops at Brownsean AND the chainlink ferry. Stop for a stroll on Brownsea if you fancy
Admittedly (probably) a more expensive way to do it, but it’s a nice area and the bus and boat trip options will show you some nice bits 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Thanks all. Got a bit of a clue now!Posted 4 years ago
keef – I owe you a waking up after the first night in Sant Gregori! It’ll be about 8 ish when we get there but we’re not on the main campsite, it was full. I’ll come and find you at some point on Saturday afters ideally about beer o’clock. ;0)
