Steam Packet won't proceed with excursion for Queen's funeral

Company says decision made 'reluctantly' for several reasons

The Steam Packet has confirmed it won't proceed with plans for an excursion for Her Majesty The Queen's lying in state or state funeral.

The organisation says the decision has been made 'reluctantly' due to long queuing times, high levels of traffic in London and other operational constraints.

The Steam Packet says anyone wishing to pay their respects in London may consider using the Sail & Rail offer.

It adds staff at the Ferry Travel Shop at the Sea Terminal will be available to help make travel arrangements.
