BC and the family were sighted on a ferry yesterday apparently.
georgia kohn-smith @georgia_KohnS · 17h When you’re too busy admiring how cute Benedict Cumberbatch’s kids are to realise he’s sat next to you. On the ferry.
The tweet came from someone who hails from Newport Wales but that doesn’t mean she saw the Cumberbatch family in that area of course. But it sounds like he is having some family time at the moment. Makes me want to go “Awwww!”
I imagine Sophie and Ben’s children are showstopper cute and quite a distraction!
That was my thoughts exactly. I have seen numerous sightings tweeted of BC on the Isle of Wight ferry and it was reported in the local paper that he had a place on the island. Also he has been seen a lot in the Sun Inn in Hulverstone so he does frequent the area even if he doesn’t actually have a place there. He also has said that he loves the sea and the IOW is all about being near the sea (especially around the Brighstone area).

Perhaps the person was on the Isle of Wight Ferry. BC & Family seem to go there fairly often. I seem to remember reading they have a house there although that may be just media speculation.
You were right. Another tweet. According to the conversation on the replies, Wanda was there too. Her friend "just saw him sat across from her when he got up to go to the toilet and she just stared with her mouth open and his mum started laughing at her".
This is old and from the same thread about "nice allegations" against celebrities that the tweet telling the story of him visiting patients in that hospice during TIG filming posted in the charity thread:
I actually remember this guy tweeting about his meeting with BC when he was shooting Twelve Years a Slave in New Orleans!
