The Isle of Wight is a large island in the traditional county of Hampshire, across the Solent from Portsmouth and the New Forest.

Newport is the largest town, and the hub of the island's geography and road network.

Getting to the Island

There is no fixed road crossing to the Island, not are there any immediate plans to do so, particularly since none of the approach roads to the Solent (such as the A337, A33 and A3) are designed to cope with such a level of through traffic.

Three vehicle ferries run to the Isle of Wight:

Extra passenger routes run between Southampton and Cowes, Portsmouth Harbour railway station and Ryde Pier Head railway station, and Southsea to Ryde Esplande via hovercraft.
