Travel to the Wight Lindy Weekend
As many of you will appreciate we are on an Island so you have to travel on a ferry to reach us. Below are some suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
From Gatwick Airport – Buy a ticket to Shanklin Station – let us know when you expect to arrive and we will collect you from Shanklin Station.
From Bristol Airport – You can get a coach to Bristol Temple Meads station and a train from there to Portsmouth, then Catamaran to Ryde and train to Shanklin. Buy a ticket from Bristol Temple Meads to Shanklin. The train journey is just over 2 hours from Bristol to Portsmouth, plus another 40 minutes for the Catamaran and train.
By car you will need to make a reservation with either Wightlink or Red Funnel. We anticipate having a special deal with Wightlink, details available in November. The Wightlink journey from Portsmouth to Fishbourne is about 40 minutes, and Red Funnel from Southampton to East Cowes is an hour.
Train tickets are cheaper if purchased in advance on-line – 13 weeks is the most you can buy in advance so book around the end of January. If you need any help please e-mail or phone Gary as he will look at your requirements and search out the best option.
We anticipate Wight Link will grant us discount on ferry fares! More info will be available in January 2018, watch this space.
