The Hamble–Warsash Ferry is an irregular ferry service on the River Hamble in Hampshire, England. The ferry operates between Hamble-le-Rice on the west bank of the river and Warsash on the east.
The current service is the latest incarnation of a service that has operated for over a thousand years. It was an important link on the route between the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton. It was also a key link in more than one pilgrimage route.
The ferry now provides a link in local, national and international footpaths such as the Solent Way and cycle routes such as National Cycle Route 2.
