VISITORS to Portsmouth will be able to use a new park and sail scheme from Saturday.

Passengers can park their cars all day at Portsmouth International Port and catch a boat to Gunwharf Quays for £5.

Portsmouth City Council is offering the service, which includes a tour of Portsmouth Harbour, to reduce congestion on the roads.

The service starts on Saturday and runs until August 26 and leaves the port on the hour between 10am and 5pm, returning on the hour between 10.30am and 6.30pm.
