I’ve used Googlemaps for some time now to plan routes. It’s now recently started including public transport (seems to be limited to buses) and walking. Given that I’d expect the walking route to take the most direct route, while avoiding motorways, I decided to see what it recommended for walking to Exeter from Southsea. I’m not actually planning on doing this, but several years ago, AutoRoute Express suggested that the most direct route (driving) from Southsea to Exeter was via the Isle of Wight. I wondered, therefore, if it would produce a similar route.
It does require two ferry crossings – but to Guernsey!
