    How to get to the festival from Portsmouth

    There are many ways to get to the Isle of Wight Festival from Portsmouth.

    By ferry

    Ferry is typically the easiest route to get yourself to the music festival from Portsmouth.

    Wightlink will be offering a service for those who are travelling on foot from the city, with the catamaran operating from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde.

    There will be a bus service operating from Ryde to take you straight to the Newport festival.

    The Isle of Wight Festival would not advise taking the Portsmouth to Fishbourne ferry if you are travelling without a vehicle, as there is no transport at the Fishbourne terminal to take you to the Festival.

    You can also travel by ferry with your car.

    All you need to do is book your travel, board the ferry in your car, drive off at the other side and follow the directional signage to the festival.

    Drivers will be able to park at the festival site.

    The ferry timetable and prices can be found here.


    Hovertravel operates a hovercraft from Southsea to Ryde that only takes 10 minutes across the Solent.

    Bus travel after the hovercraft is only a short two-minute journey from the terminal in Ryde.

    For prices and timetables, please visit the Hovertravel website.


    Southern Vectis run regular shuttle buses to and from Ryde Esplanade directly to the festival bus station.

    Ferry port shuttle buses will operate from around 8am until 4am Thursday to Monday.

    The last buses will be at midday on Monday.
