Port Connections

By Sea

Sea ports on the south coast of England are easily accessible from Wiltshire. From Salisbury you can be at Southampton Port within half an hour and Portsmouth in an hour. Northern parts of the county are able to access Bristol docks in less than an hour.

As one of the country’s busiest and most successful deep-water ports, Southampton provides a wide range of facilities and can handle virtually any type of cargo. Its natural deep-water harbour and unique double tide allow unrestricted access for the world’s largest vessels. Southampton is in an excellent strategic position close to the main international shipping lanes and less than 100 nautical miles from mainland Europe.

Portsmouth International Port has freight facilities for easy transit to France, Spain and the Channel Islands and Portland Port has the second largest man made harbour in the world, situated 20 nautical miles north of the westerly shipping lanes and on the main maritime trade routes allowing fast, safe access 24 hours a day.

Avonmouth and Portbury Docks near Bristol have their own dedicated motorway junctions on the M5, just 7 miles from the M4 interchange and four miles from the second Severn crossing. They are also both connected to the rail network
