I do this trip (Plymouth/Portsmouth) once a week and take the A35/A31 route. I took the 303 route last week (via Yeovil) which added almost an hour to the trip (with a brief stop in Yeovil).

Thanks Tim, A35 it is then.

Mollers I have to travel with a car full, eldest son, uncle, grandfather & Nephew.
Really wish I was from Penryn,
would have only needed a 2 seater then.

I do Dartmouth - Portsmouth quite a lot and agree with Tim that the A30 - A35 - A31 route hs aways been best for me.

Often do the Devon to Fareham / Gosport route - t'others are correct in my book.

A303 is just a pain.

Well the trip was well worth it, my eldest passed his AIB (admiralty interview board) and has just received a call to say he has a place at Britannia Royal Naval College training in his preferred role as warfare officer starting in April!
To say I'm delighted & very proud somewhat understates it!

Excellent News Kernow, really pleased for you / him

I've decided that my 14 month old is going to be a Marine Biologist (If I had my time over etc).....living my life vicariously through him, he doesn't stand a chance...

Oh and a Welsh Cap wouldn't go amiss either.....

Another Cornishman in the big grey tubs.

Ideal - well done to all - must have taken his brains from his mother
