Or know anyone that does?
I'm wondering if you get cheaper ferry crossings for being a resident on the island.

Does Pina Colada not? Don't think that she is on here now though
07/01/2013 at 10:25
I don't know who she is.

I live in Southampton and have friends who live there. When they pop over, they have to pay same rate as others.

Pina Colada does, I think I messaged her about this before when we went but happy to again if you like
07/01/2013 at 15:15
No it's fine thanks x

Pretty sure they pay the same as everyone else. I went to uni with a girl from IoW and she had a petition going for cheaper residents fares, but don't think anything ever came of it.

Doesn't it get cheaper, the longer you stay?

I've spoken to my aunt who lives on the island now. They sometimes get offers in local papers or 15% off red funnel.

I am pretty sure that you get cheaper crossings on the hovercraft as opposed to a ferry? Are cars essential?
07/01/2013 at 19:58
Yeah def need the car. No biggy as got return for £39.

Dont think so, my PIL live there so we go a lot, and for some holidays of our own. We normally search for discount codes for wight link and red funnel. I hate red funnel ferries the journey and the boats. Wight link is much better!

Yeah we've booked with wightlink. We are going nodes point park resorts Catarina :)

You ll have a good time! f you walk down to the beach at the bottom there is a fantastic restaurant called 'Baywatch on the Beach'- just looks like a little cafe, but in the evenings has a great menu, feels really special like a little hidden gem.
And if you head over to Ventnor, go to the Botanical gardens and ask them for directions to walk down to Smugglers Cove (10min walk max with kids) - another hidden gem if you haven't come across it before!

Thanks for the restaurant rec. I know about smugglers cove, pretty much done the whole island but usually stay in shanklin. Fancy a change. Looking forward to going back to the mouse inn at Chalk. Gorgeous pub.

Ooh yes I like the mouse inn too. I'll be gutted when my PIL move, we won't be able to go anywhere near as often if it always has to be holidays!
