Choose the Island this autumn

Make 2021 the year of clifftop walks with extraordinary views. The year of epic open spaces, yours for the taking. The year of the Isle of Wight.

Right on your doorstep, but seemingly a world away, the Island is the perfect getaway destination – whether you’re after a spur-of-the-moment short break or a week-long holiday. After all, the Isle of Wight wasn’t chosen as the UK Holiday Destination of the Year 2020 for no reason.

Open spaces and room to roam aren’t just the preserve of the Island itself, either – you’ll get that on our ferries, too. In response to coronavirus, we’ve put in a host of measures to make your journey with us as safe as possible – that’s why we’ve achieved the ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark from VisitEngland.

And, with midweek day returns starting from just £55*, there’s been no better time to visit the Island.

Get away from it all

Can you remember the last time you truly got away from it all? When you could truly linger over your lunch? The Isle of Wight is the ultimate island escape, your chance to leave the everyday behind.

Whatever floats your boat, whether it’s scenic drives, dog walks with clifftop views or visiting historic sites, laden with stories from yesteryear, we’re your link to the place that makes it happen.
