Taxi from Chichester to Portsmouth?

We want to get from the Roman Palace near Chichester to Portsmouth to take the ferry to the Isle of Wight and are wondering if we will be able to get a taxi in Chichester to do that. It's about 19 miles. We could take a bus, but we won't really have time to do that. We'll be in England the first two weeks of October.

You could always get a train from Fishbourne train station straight to Portsmouth Harbour or Gunwharf for about £6-7 each. The train station is quite close to the Roman Palace. A taxi will be about £40 I think. Put your journey in http://cheaptaxichichester.co.uk/ to see the cost. Another reputable company is Starline Minicabs. The company I work for in Chichester only uses Starline. Here is the email address: info@starlineminicabs.co.uk so you could email them for a quote.

Hope you have a great time!

Good advice re the train - straight from Fishbourne to the Ferry Terminal at Portsmouth Harbour. Trains in the UK are (generally) an excellent and quick way to travel.

On the Island, train services are limited to the Ryde Pierhead to Shanklin line - but then buses are the best way to travel there.
