My daughter and I will be spending the night in Portsmouth before taking the ferry to Le Havre. There are tickets available from London Victoria Station to Portsmouth Southsea at a convenient time for 10 pounds for the two of us, 1/10 the cost to Portsmouth. But I can't figure out why they're so cheap. Is the station far from the hotels and ferry terminal? Is it in a scary neighborhood we'll be lucky to get out of alive? Or is it just so far in advance (6 weeks) that cheap tickets are still available?
