Foot passenger fares from the mainland to the Isle of Wight

Travelling on foot? Welcome aboard. All three Wightlink Isle of Wight ferry routes are perfect for foot passengers and with a variety of combination tickets including onward transport you can save money too!

Getting to and around the Isle of Wight on foot

If arriving by train from anywhere in the country, just head for Portsmouth Harbour or Lymington Pier railway station. Both stations are right next to ferry terminals so we can whisk you across to the Isle of Wight in no time.

Once on the Island, there are easy onward transport links to all destinations. A comprehensive bus service is run by Southern Vectis that covers the whole Island so whether you’re arriving in Ryde, Fishbourne or Yarmouth, there’ll be a bus to pick you up.

Island Line train services run between Ryde Pier Head and Shanklin calling at Brading, Sandown and Lake which also connects with the Isle of Wight Steam Railway at Smallbrook Junction.

There are 200 miles of cycling routes on the Island for you to enjoy if you’re bringing your bike (bikes travel free with us!). If you’re more comfortable on two feet then you can enjoy over 500 miles of walking routes across the Island which are easily accessible from our terminals.
