Walking festival

Visit Isle of Wight LTD has today announced that the Isle of Wight Walking Festival (Isle Walk 18) will take place between 21st April and 13th May 2018.

The popular Isle of Wight Walking Festival remains one of the UK’s biggest walking festivals, and allows participants to follow in the footsteps of everyone; from Alfred Lord Tennyson to Jimi Hendrix and dinosaurs to the perfect dawn chorus.

Walkers head everywhere from Queen Victoria’s Osborne House to across the Island with Walk the Wight – an event that sees thousands of people walk between 8 and 26.5 miles across the breadth of the Isle of Wight for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

Walking is recognised as an ideal way to improve well-being and with around 80 country and coastal walks to choose from over 16 days, IsleWalk is a great way to kickstart the habit.

All walks are led by local enthusiasts who are keen to share their knowledge of this beautiful Island with you – and what’s more, most walks are free.
