The Isle of Wight is the perfect place for a dancing weekend

The Isle of Wight boasts beautiful countryside and beaches (currently there are 14 award-winning beaches, with three blue flag winners including Shanklin).  Approximately half the Isle of Wight is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, designated in 1963, which in total covers around 189 sq. km. The Island's AONB is represented by a diversity of landscapes, from imposing chalk cliffs to rolling countryside, plus half of the coastline including all of the Heritage Coast.


Travel is easy and the Island can be accessed by ferry from Lymington, Cowes or Portsmouth. Services are operated by Wightlink and Red Funnel.  Special fare deals are available via the weekend booking.

All mainland ferry ports have rail connections to London, the North, Bristol, Brighton etc. Rail Services are operated by South Western Railways, Southern and Cross Country Trains.
