Day trip to Isle of Wight

We are planning a brief trip to Portsmouth and Southampton (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday). We will be leaving on a cruise from Southampton.

We would like to visit the Isle of Wight as well. Should we do a day trip to Isle of Wight? Is it easy to get around by public transit and is there enough to keep us busy for the day?

Hi there Bumpbunny,

To answer to your question...yes its easy to get around the IOW on public transport.

A bus pass for one day is £20 for a family max of 2 adults and 3 kids.

Or you could travel from Portsmouth to the IOW on the hover craft


and buy a combined ticket see below


When visting Portsmouth allow a full day as there is a lot to see and do.

if you need any more info...feel free to message me
