Those leaving the car at home can hop on the high speed passenger ferry and take advantage of the reliable transport network once on the island. Also, dogs are welcome on the ferries too. With over 60 miles of coastal path, Isle of Wight holidays are pure heaven for those who enjoy exploring on foot! Choose from the hundreds of trails across the island to take in its beauty while you stroll.
The island hosts 3-day music festival, Bestival, in September and carnivals weave across the island throughout the summer and winter. The carnival season starts with the famed Arts Parade in Ryde, in which a lively parade shimmies through the centre of the town in an explosive spectacle of colour and noise! Ryde Carnival also ends the Isle of Wight’s carnival season at the end of August.
