Slow Travel Guide Launched
The Slow Travel Guide to the Isle of Wight is a collection of eight sustainable travel routes around the Isle of Wight that can be explored by a combination of bus, walking and bicycle.
The routes act as an invitation to visit the Island’s ‘headline acts’, but also to explore many of its lesser-known, yet equally delightful spots. The routes feature food and drink, farm shops, artists and craftspeople as well as places of interest – including some ‘secret’ rural gems.
The emphasis is on exploring the Isle of Wight and really getting a feel for Island life, and the guide offers practical travel information on how to explore the Island without a car. Walking, cycling or taking the bus (or train) around the Island enables visitors to slow down and take their time.
The Slow Travel Guide to the Isle of Wight has been researched and written by Mark Rowe, news editor of Countryfile Magazine and produced by Visit Isle of Wight. The guide has been funded by the Isle of Wight Council’s Access Fund.
The guide is available via a website and uses Google maps to plot the routes.
