Sandbanks ferry this Friday 2 August around 7pm - yes or no?

Hi everyone - I'm planning to drive from London to Studland this Friday 2 August and will be getting to Poole area around 7pm. Is it a safe bet to take the ferry to Studland at that time or will it be horrendously busy and therefore I should take the long route via road and drive in from Wareham? many thanks in advance for any tips !

According to their website they operate a shuttle service during busy times to clear the queues.

Personally I would sit it out rather than take the long drive round.

depending exactly where your destination is - it is only around 12 miles further to drive around, as you don't need to drive into Poole.
