A recent trip to Guernsey gave rise to overnight parking at Poole ferry terminal. This stopover facility enables motorhomers and caravanners to be in the right place at the right time!

At the time of writing, the fee is £5.00 for overnight caravan parking. The same tariff applies to motorhomes too. The overnight fee is payable at the “Harry Rocks” cafe, adjacent to the check-in lanes.

Overnight parking at Poole ferry terminal – facilities

  • Toilets – plenty of them and very clean
  • Showers – one of each, his and hers
  • Disabled toilet facility
  • Chemical disposal point
  • Fresh water
  • Coffee shop (not 24 hours)

The area is quiet enough at night. The “Barfleur” Brittany Ferry was in residence overnight with her engines running, but the noise was nothing to get upset about. A large ASDA supermarket is about fifteen minutes walk away, with a similar distance to Poole shopping centre.

There are two ferry operators serving the Poole ferry terminal. Condor Ferries have their high speed service to the Channel Islands/St Malo whilst Brittany Ferries have a service to Cherbourg.
