Take a sunny summer short break where there’s room to breathe.

Looking for a place where there’s room to breathe… room to explore… room to make new discoveries and enjoy exciting new experiences? We know the place. It’s called the Isle of Wight and no one is better placed to take you there than Wightlink.

Step aboard one of our comfortable, modern ferries and in just a short crossing you’ve forgotten the hustle and bustle of the mainland and you’re heading for a place where life is a little more leisurely, the people that bit more friendly and the possibilities… well, endless.

There’s room to get off the beaten track, to walk the high chalk downs with the waves breaking below or stroll through delightful countryside in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There’s room to pause awhile in ancient, friendly inns with glorious gardens for an alfresco drink and to savour an outstanding cuisine scene in cafés, restaurants and hotels.

There’s room for you. A weekend or more away from it all is the perfect way to charge the batteries in summer or any time of year. And there’s room for the family. Miles of sandy beaches, traditional resorts, theme parks, animal centres, botanical gardens, even a heritage railway mean no one’s ever short of fun.

And there’s room to channel the inner you. Our year-round calendar of festivals – this is Festival Island – and events cover every interest from music (naturally) to history, heritage, culinary and a whole lot more.

Why travel with Wightlink?

Wightlink is part of Island life. We don’t just go there, we know there. We take millions of holidaymakers on our crossings from Lymington and Portsmouth to three island destinations in just 20 minutes by catamaran or around 40 minutes by ferry. We’re flexible, friendly and with some 48,000 crossings a year, there’s room for you on board whenever you choose to travel. So cast off for the place where there’s room to breathe. You’ll be back.
