Getting Around

20The Isle of Wight is only around 23 x 13 miles, so none of the Island’s many attractions are very far away. 

If you’re travelling by car the Island has a good network of roads, although these tend to be country roads, in keeping with its traditional nature. It is possible to use public transport on the Island and you will find connections to all the service providers’ web sites on the Links Page.

Within a fifteen-minute drive of Silver Glades you will find numerous attractions, such as Fort Victoria, Calbourne Water Mill, The Needles, Alum Bay, Carisbrooke Castle, Chessell Pottery, Dimbola Lodge, Winkle Street and picturesque Yarmouth.

21Within the same area, you will also find sandy beaches at Colwell Bay, Totland Bay, Freshwater Bay and Compton Bay, together with the beautiful scenery of Tennyson Down, Compton Down, Brightstone Down and Newtown national nature reserve.  Details of these and all the attractions to be found on the Island can be found by connecting with the sites suggested on the Links Page.

If you would prefer to walk or cycle to get around the island there is a well established network of paths for both.  The contacts suggested on the Links Page should provide you with all the information you need to plan routes and obtain equipment.
