The Isle of Wight: Scenic Walks

Updated: Jan 24, 2019

It may be small, but it's certainly scenic. The Isle of Wight tends to get overlooked by Londoner's looking for a weekend escape from the hustle and bustle of the capital, as they get drawn to alternative seaside spots such as Bournemouth and Brighton that don't require a ferry crossing. But nipping over that small stretch of water only takes a mere 15/20 minutes on the catamaran from Portsmouth or Southampton, and the journey's end point is worth every wave dutifully sailed over. The definite draw for the Isle of Wight is its extensive walks – it's a haven for avid hikers and Sunday afternoon post-pub-roast amblers alike. A good bus service, and even a little train from the Pier to some of the bigger towns, means that getting around on your own is easy even if you don't have a car during your stay. Clear your head and enjoy some 'me time' while wandering along my favourite routes (all under 3hrs) on this pretty little British isle:


STEEPHILL COVE TO BONCHURCH




CULVER DOWN TO SHANKLIN




FRESHWATER BAY TO TENNYSON DOWN




ST. CATHERINE'S LIGHTHOUSE
