There is some parking in Admiralty Quarter, which is a shared parking space with residents and the historic dockyard. However, head up to the Hard and, on the mini roundabout turn left and follow the road to the T-Junction, when you look right, there's a reasonably priced Portsmouth Council car park.
Janner - save yourself the hassle and use the new park and ride. Car park is right off the M275, bus takes you straight to the historic dockyard/gunwharf and is only £2 for a day return. Enjoy your trip to sunny Pompey!
Thanks for the replies, the park and ride looks to be the way forward. For those that don't know the concession scheme for the Dockyard etc has been extended to members of the Submariners Association. A list of those entitled and what you can get access too shown below

If you drive down Queens Rd towards The Hard - just before the road turns left onto the Hard there is a Multi Storey Carpark on the left (I think the inside lane is signposted "Carpark" and takes you straight to it. All in all about 5 mions walk from the dockyard gate.
I would agree with Spare-Rib. I used the Park and Ride when I visited the Mary Rose. Easy access from the M275, £2 all day and drop off at The Hard so hardly any walk at all. The fee covers all of the occupants in the car too.
Park and ride is fantastic, only a couple of quid all day parking which includes bus fare. And buses run about every 10 minutes. Saves all the hassle of driving through Pompey which is often gridlocked depending on time of travel.
Just stick a big eats delivery or Jack Blair sign on your car and you'll get waved through the dockyard gate straightaway:wink:
Failing that the park and Ride is the cheapest and most hassle free option
