Evenings out in Ryde for just £7.50

For just £7.50 as a foot passenger you could be enjoying ‘life as a local’ in scenic Ryde this autumn. Our FastCat takes just 22 minutes from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pier Head.

You’ll find traditional pubs with roaring log fires serving some of the best local craft beers, wine and gin, plus live music most nights of the week. Ryde has more than its fair share of places to eat out, too. From Italian to Thai and fine-dining to fast-food, there’s something for everyone. Walk off dinner and blow away the cobwebs along the miles of sandy beaches.

To take advantage of the offer, simply take your outward journey to Ryde after 4.00pm and return the same evening. Adults, students and senior citizens travel for £7.50, children sail for £3.00 and, as always, infants go free.

What’s more, we’re teaming up with local eateries to get you more great deals for your night out in Ryde. See below for more details.

Your Island adventure awaits.
