Or here:
Bembridge (http://www.eghj.com/index.html)

But I guess that you may need Southampton, and a hire car to the ferry.

If you can drive on the wrong side of the road :-) Southampton is not that far from Heathrow. I'd probably fly into London and drive from there.

And if you can't, trains or buses are likely to be cheaper than flying.

If you are going to drive, fly into Gatwick. If you are going to take the train, fly into Heathrow.

I wish. Well, actually, probably not at this time of year. Time to be thinking of going to Antigua, having missed St. Tropez.

Some year.
