How to get there

To get to the Island from mainland England by road you can use either Wightlink ferries from Portsmouth to Fishbourne or Lymington to Yarmouth, or Red Funnel ferries from Southampton to Cowes. To travel by rail from Portsmouth to Ryde Pier Head, your destination will be Shanklin Railway Station from there you can take a taxi or you can walk to the Esplanade (which will take about 15 mins), and its all down hill ! If you do decide to walk, turn left out of the station ( you can see the sea from here) onto Atherley Road, continue down the hill to the traffic lights, go straight across onto Hope Road, go down Hope Hill onto the Esplanade, we are situated about 500 meters from The Victorian Clock Tower that is about 3/4 of the way along the Esplanade.
