Isle of Wight Spring Walking Festival 2016
Sunday 13 May 2016
With more than half of the Island recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and 500 miles of well-maintained footpaths , it's no wonder the Isle of Wight is home to the UK's largest walking festival. There are over 300 walks, many of which are themed including heritage trails, fossil hunting and even a speed dating walk.

Whether you’d like to build your confidence through Fire walking, increase your mental and physical wellbeing through Tai Chi and Meditation or find that special someone through Speed Dating, the Walking Festival has it all.
Family Discovery Walks: Short walks with plenty of exciting things to see and do, in town, country or on the beach. Walk in the footsteps of prehistoric dinosaurs or learn about the secret life of rock pools. For children, join in the Pram and Toddler walks – a great way to enjoy a stroll with the family. Alternatively join in one of our fascinating Story walks where children can walk along the shore at low tide searching for sea glass, driftwood and limpet shells – which will be woven into further tales.

Ghost Walks: We won’t let you rest when darkness falls! Keep close behind our guides as they regale you with tales of mystery and suspense!

Food Walks: The guilt free way to have your cake and eat it! Honey for Tea and Chale Tea Party walks will burn off enough energy to enjoy guilt free indulgence of tea and cakes.

Garden Walks: The Garden Isle offers an abundance of breathtaking flora and fauna. Take in the stunning scenery and historical gardens on one of the many garden walks – Changing the Beds at Osborne, Bedding and Bluebells.

The festival culminates in"Walk the Wight" a challenging 26.5 mile walk around the Island in aid of The Earl Mountbatten Hospice. Shorter walks and a flat walk are also available.
Walk the Wight - Sun 13 May 2016
The annual 'Walk the Wight' is a spectacular 26.5 mile sponsored walk across the breadth of the Isle of Wight from Bembridge in the east to Alum Bay in the west.

Last year just under 10,000 people took part in this lovely walk across some of the Island’s most beautiful hills and countryside and all the money raised goes towards running the Isle of Wight Hospice.
Riverfest, organised by the Footprint Trust, is a celebration of river and community life. Last year the event was attended by some 4000 people, who enjoyed the atmosphere and attractions on offer.

The event will be hosted on Newport's historic quay and will provide plenty of entertainment and spectacle for everyone. For the children there will be tradtional Victorian funfar stalls as well as local children's activity providers. There will also be plenty of stalls exhibiting and selling everything from local foods to crafts.

One of the highlights of the day is likely to be the flotilla of vessels of all sizes and shapes which will pass-by the quay in procession. There will also be a tall ship from The Little Brig Sailing Trust who provide sailing experience to young people on some of the worlds smallest tall ships.

Entry is free but there may be charges for certain activities.
