The Isle of Wight is a great holiday location and a popular choice for many. If you’re on the hunt for cheap holidays in the UK, why not consider this island destination?
If you like to experience the beauty that the Isle of Wight has to offer, here are five of the most cost-effective ways to explore the island – relevant for other holiday locations too!
The most standard way of exploring the island is by walking. The Isle of Wight is a true walker’s paradise – and it’s free!
Explore the best outdoors with some lengthy walks – there’s a 68-mile coastal path to explore. If you desire to make your walk that little bit easier there are plenty of island walking guides to help you along the way.
Throughout your journey, you’ll see some beautiful parts of history, like the iconic Needles Lighthouse.
What other landmarks will you find?
If you want to take your exploration that one step further, why not try cycling? By bringing your own bike, you’ll be cutting costs even further! Not only is it one of the best places in the UK to walk, but it’s one of the top cycling destinations in the world!
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned cyclist, there will be a route to suit you. But if you are a veteran when it comes to cycling, you may be interested in the ‘round the island’ cycle route –covering 65 miles!
Whoever you decide to cycle with, this is a good way to take your explorations to the next level!
It doesn’t stop at walking and cycling, as you can take your journeys even further, with the ability to partake in horse riding trips.
Sit back while you take in the peaceful country lanes and sandy beaches. Traditionally, horse riding can be quite expensive, but lessons here are around £20 an hour, which is relatively inexpensive – especially for a holiday treat!
There’s even a specialist equine centre, where horses are used for learning and life skills. So, if you want to start an educational journey while on the island, there are many resources here for you to do so – making the cost extremely worthwhile!
Tickets are under £10 for a slow cruise to see the famous Needles Rocks and Lighthouse, so why not sit back, relax, and experience the sea world for yourself?
Rather than experiencing the island on the ground or sea, try exploring from up above, by tree climbing!
You can experience the great outdoors at great heights, with instructors who will show you the way. And with the cost of an hour tree climbing session being £5, you can’t go wrong!
