How to get to the Festival 2017

Travelling to the Festival with us couldn’t be easier!

Located on the UK South Coast, Southsea is the ideal passenger gateway to the Isle of Wight Festival and is easily accessible from all parts of the country by road and rail.

Booking and travelling with Hovertravel is easy.

Our hovercraft depart from Southsea, Portsmouth and will have you across the Solent and onto the Isle of Wight in less than 10 minutes, faster than any other ferry service. We’ll drop you off directly onto the beach, so there is no need to walk all the way down the pier. Awaiting you at Ryde are the festival shuttle buses ready to transport you directly to the Festival.

Arriving by Train

If you are coming to our Southsea terminal by rail, the nearest station is Portsmouth and Southsea Station. Follow the signs to the connecting Hoverbus shuttle service (Bus stop M or C), which will have you at our terminal in less than ten minutes. If you have purchased a rail ticket to Ryde Hoverport, just show this ticket to the Hoverbus driver and you can get on the bus free of charge.

Arriving by Car

Southsea Terminal Address - Southsea, Clarence Esplanade, Southsea, Portsmouth. PO5 3AD. Head to Portsmouth and onto the M27. Join the M275 and continue past the continental ferry port towards Portsmouth. Follow the signs for Isle of Wight ferries, Seafront and Historic Waterfront. From here on, follow the signs for the hovercraft. There is a large council operated pay and display car park opposite the hovercraft terminal. Discounted 4 day car parking tickets are available at Southsea Terminal on the day of travel.
