Winter Walkers

See the Island in a different season.

Whilst winter may not be the traditional time to visit, it is actually one of the best times to come to the Isle of Wight
Follow in the footsteps of everyone from Alfred Lord Tennyson to Jimi Hendrix; from dinosaurs to the prefect dawn chorus; and heading everywhere from Queen Victoria’s Osborne House to a non-stop walk around the entire 72-miles coastal path.

Over half of the Island is recognised as an AONB.  And with its 60-miles of dramatic Heritage Coastline and more than 500-miles of well-maintained and signposted footpaths the Island has long been recognised as a walker’s paradise, with less visitors on the roads and footpaths winter walks and cycling are very popular. 

 The Isle of Wight is often referred to as ‘England in Miniature’, and in just one day of walking it’s possible to see the very best of the English countryside from sand dunes and pebbly coves to thatched villages and bustling sailing towns.
