Getting Here

You can get to the Island from London by train and ferry in around two hours and even quicker by air to one of our two airfields. We are happy to take care of travel arrangements and have negotiated special ferry rates for productions on the Island


There are up to 200 Isle of Wight ferry crossings a day operating from Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington. They arrive into 5 different Island towns – Ryde, Cowes, East Cowes, Fishbourne and Yarmouth – the latter 3 services also carry vehicles.


There are excellent rail connections to all the major ferry ports, providing fast access to the Isle of Wight from across the UK. Many ferry services coincide with train arrival times and connect with our Island Trains services on arrival.

Private boat services

Ribs, motorboats and more can be arranged for private transfers safely and quickly from mainland to Island ports and landing places that suit your plans.


The bus stations at Portsmouth and Southampton are both a short distance from the adjoining passenger ferries, allowing coach travel from any connecting destinations.

There are also “all in one” tickets available, which include coach travel to the port, ferry travel and connecting bus service once you arrive on the Island.


The Island has two airfields. Fixed wing and helicopter traffic is accepted and there is no congestion. Landing at either location can be arranged as can collection and onward travel – not that it will be far. We can arrange charters on request.
