The Isle of Wight Coastal Path Walk
The Isle of Wight Coastal Path
is the latest addition to our programme of self guided walking holidays in England. The Isle of Wight, which lies a short distance off the South Coast of England has more than 500 miles of carefully maintained footpaths and rights of way. This combined with 60 miles of dramatic unspoilt coastline, picturesque farms and villages and the wide open high downs make the Isle of Wight a walkers paradise and the perfect destination for a self guided walking holiday.
The Isle of Wight Coastal Path walk starts in Ryde, where the high speed ferries and hovercrafts from Portsmouth and Southsea dock. Portsmouth is only a pleasant two hour train journey from London Waterloo so the splendid walking on the Isle of Wight really is just a short journey from the middle of London. From Ryde the Coastal Path, which is comprehensively waymarked, stretches for 67 miles around the island's coast.
The full Coastal Path can be walked comfortably in a about a week or as little as four days if you are looking for a challenge. Alternatively the Isle of Wight is the perfect destination for a weekend short walking break and we have a number of short break walking holidays on the island.
Some of the many highlights of the walk include the panoramic views of the white cliffs from Tennyson Down, the colourful variegated cliffs at Alum Bay and the unspoilt beaches at Shanklin, Sandown and Freshwater Bay. An abundance of wildlife and historic sites will keep you enthralled as you walk between the charming coastal villages of the Isle of Wight.
A self guided walking holiday is the very best way to discover the wonderful scenery and relaxed pace of life on the Isle of Wight. Our walking holidays include hand picked B&B's, guesthouses and small hotels, daily door to door baggage transfer, detailed information packs and maps and emergency telephone support. Our attention to detail, outstanding accommodation and exemplary service are the reason why thousands of walkers choose us for their walking holidays in England every year. I hope that you will choose to walk with us on the Isle of Wight Coastal Path soon.
