Inland walking holidays on the Isle of Wight

If you'd rather explore more of the island and are not too bothered about the coastal routes, there are several walking trails that are further inland. The Tennyson Trail is a fourteen-mile route that takes in a number of iconic locations on the Isle of Wight. Starting at Carisbrooke near Newport, the trail takes you past Carisbrooke Castle, famous for in the imprisonment of King Charles I before he was executed in 1649. The trail then takes you through Brighstone Forest, past ancient burial mounds and over Tennyson Down. You'll pass the Tennyson Monument and will end up at the Needles. Here you'll find spectacular views that will make the walk completely worth it.

The Alverstone Walk is around four miles long and is great if you want to take in some nature on your walk. The route itself crosses through two nature reserves as well as going past a red squirrel hide. These squirrels have a minute presence on the mainland due to the population explosion of the greys so the Isle of Wight is a great place to go to see the considerably rarer reds. The nature reserves will offer you the chance to see several species of wildlife including badgers, foxes, dormice and various different breeds of bat.
