A lot of people who have never visited the Isle of Wight wonder ‘How do I get to the Isle of Wight?’ or even ‘where is the Isle of Wight?’ so this post will quickly describe where the Isle of Wight is and how to get there.
The Isle of Wight is an island of the South Coast of England. If you were to draw a line down the middle of the UK from North to South you’d hit the Isle of Wight at the bottom.
The distance from the mainland varies and the only realistic way to get to the Isle of Wight is by Ferry (unless you have your own boat, small aircraft or helicopter). The shortest crossings are the Portsmouth to Ryde ferry crossing which is about 3 miles or the Lymington to Yarmouth crossing which is about 3.5 miles
The main ferry terminals are in Lymington, Southampton and Portsmouth and journey times vary.
