'Slow travel' guide launched for the Isle of Wight

A digital guide to ‘slow travel’ around the Isle of Wight has been released by the island's tourism body.

Visit Isle of Wight has launched the guide to encourage visitors and residents to use more relaxed ways of travelling, instead of going everywhere by car and missing some of the Island’s more secluded secrets.

It includes a collection of eight sustainable travel routes around the island that can be explored by a combination of bus, walking and cycling.

The routes feature food and drink, farm shops, artists and craftspeople as well as places of interest - including some 'secret' rural gems.

Visit Isle of Wight is promoting the guide off Island, but is also encouraging Isle of Wight businesses and residents to use the guide and help promote it to visitors, friends and family.

The Slow Travel Guide has been produced in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council, as part of the Access Fund for Sustainable Travel - a £1.3 million three year sustainable transport programme which was secured from the Department for Transport (DfT), now in its final year.

You can access the guide here.
