Reaching the Island by train
One of the most convenient ways of reaching the Isle of Wight is by train. Each of our three mainland ports is only moments from a well-connected railway station, from where you can hop on the ferry and be on the Island in as little as 22 minutes.
London to the Isle of Wight is straightforward by train, with South Western Railway’s regular services from London Waterloo to Portsmouth. It can take you as little as 90 minutes and, from there, our FastCats can get you across the Solent to Ryde Pier Head on the Isle of Wight in just 22 minutes. You can also travel from London with Southern Railway’s regular services from London Victoria, with a change of train at Fratton or Portsmouth & Southsea.
Similarly, our Lymington port is easily accessible by train as it sits minutes from Lymington Pier Train Station. From there, you can get to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight in only 40 minutes on a beautifully scenic crossing.
