Portland Port is accessed through Weymouth via the A354 and Weymouth Relief Road. With other regional improvements, access to the M27 / M3 motorway to London and South East England, and the M5 motorway to the West, the Midlands and South Wales is becoming ever easier.
There are two scheduled trains per hour, which run between London and Weymouth, or why not consider running a charter train directly from London or indeed from the main London airports. Access by air via the UK's main hub airport, London Heathrow, is a little over two and half hours drive time. With its global links passengers can access cruises from Portland from anywhere in the world. Alternatively the regional airports at Bournemouth, Southampton, Exeter and Bristol are all within two hours of the port offering domestic and European connections.
Portland Port has developed a dedicated cruise passenger terminal and port facilities that will appeal to both passengers and cruise operators.
As part of its commitment to the cruise industry, Portland Port developed the Britannia Passenger Terminal that was officially opened by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh on 14th July 1999 and in 2005 has undergone extensive refurbishment. This facility is suitable for all passenger handling and processing.
The passenger handling capacity was extended during 2001.
All Passenger Terminal Services are controlled and co-ordinated by Portland Port utilising experienced efficient and friendly operators. Some of the services and facilities included are:
Refreshments, Public Conveniences and Telephones
Public Address, Music, Television and Satellite System
