The Walk the Wight annual charity event raises funds for the Mountbatten hospice. The full walk is 26.5 miles starting at Bembridge and finishing at Alum Bay, taking between 8-12 hours approximately. Walkers set off from Bembridge between 6am and 8am, we have added an early flight to our timetable helping those travelling across the Solent to get to the start line. Fly across the Solent in under 10-minutes on the fastest ferry route across the Solent.
