Any bus stop in Cosham High Street or the Wayte Street stop is within three minutes' walk. Alternatively, almost as close, is the Cosham Health Centre stop, from which you walk up to Wayte Street, turn right, then right again into Wootton Street, about 4 minutes' walk. There is also a not-very-obvious pathway which leads straight through from near the bus stop on the side facing Portsmouth, and it comes out almost next to the fair entrance, a mere one minute's walk, if you can find it!
Sunday rail services to Cosham are problematic at certain times of day, if arriving from the East. Perhaps more conveniently, Stagecoach Bus 23 runs from Havant Bus/Rail Station to Cosham Health Centre on Sundays : timetable link for this immediately below. If directed to the Stagecoach home page, rather than to Route 23 directly, input in the 'Find a Timetable' Location field drop-down-list 'Portsmouth' and then select '23' in the field below.
