Spring Walking Festival celebrates 25th Anniversary

26th March 2024

Whether you like to ramble, roam, march, hike or stroll, the Isle of Wight Spring Walking Festival on 11 - 19 May is a wonderful way to explore the varied landscapes, thriving wildlife and rich heritage the Island has to offer.

With over 70 walks across the Island to enjoy and explore, there's something for everyone!

On Saturday 11 May, join wildlife experts from The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust for a guided walk along the Tapnell Trail, a popular 6-mile circular walking route that runs through the middle of Tapnell Farm. The trail leads onto the downs, for spectacular views over the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival site, and the south coast of the Island.

The Tapnell Trail is part of the Isle of Wight Spring Walking Festival and aims to raise money for one of our chosen charities - the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.

To book your space on our Guided Wildlife Walk, head to Tapnell Trail Wildlife Walk - 6.5 Miles (Voluntary Donation) Tickets, Sat 11 May 2024 at 10:00 | Eventbrite
