Isle of Wight walking and cycling maps

Less than a mile from the mainland, yet worlds apart, the Isle of Wight with its stunning scenery and tranquil atmosphere was a favourite haunt of Queen Victoria and retains much of its Victorian charm today.

With over 500 miles of cycle paths, byways and bridleways weaving their way above a wildly scenic coastline and through an inland landscape of undulating downs, quiet lanes and sleepy thatched villages, the Island is a year-round cyclist's paradise, which recently also scooped the top No.1 spot in the Lonely Planet's 'Top 10 World Cycling Routes'. Criss-crossed with footpaths and long-distance trails, and encircled by a stunning 64-mile coastal path, it's also a hugely popular destinaton for walkers and the venue for the largest walking festival in the UK.

Isle of Wight Walker's Map

Walking Map
ISBN 978 1 85215 1911
Scale: 1: 41,000
Sheet size: 960mm x 700mm
Published: 2016

Produced in co-operation with Visit Isle of Wight and using Ordnance Survey cartography under licence, this brand new, double-sided, full colour map is overlaid with 16 clearly marked colour-coded long distance walks around the scenic Isle of Wight.

All the walks have been fully checked on foot by a local walker and feature all the relevant footpath numbers. They include the popular coastal path, broken into six manageable sections (including the latest coastal path reinstatements); the Yar River Trail; the Worsley Trail; the new Warrior Trail devised by the Ramblers Association; the Bembridge Trail; the Hamstead Trail; the Nunwell Trail; the Stenbury Trail; the Freshwater Way; the Tennyson Trail; and the Shepherd’s Trail. The map also includes a useful list of walker-friendly accommodation across the Island, from hotels and cosy B&Bs to hostels, farms and self-catering hideaways, so walkers can book their ideal holiday getaway.

For each walk a choice of bus stops and car parks are shown at each end of the route as well as along the way, enabling walkers to plan their journeys. In addition to the featured paths, the map also shows all the major rights of way across the Island, making it easy to join together sections of routes or devise alternative walks to suit. The Southern Vectis bus route map is also included together with a range of other useful information including pubs and cafes, viewpoints, ferry routes and visitor attractions.

Bicycle Island - Isle of Wight Cycle Map

Cycle Map
ISBN 978 1 85215 1904
Scale: 1: 46,500
Sheet size: 594mm x 840mm
Published: 2016

Produced in co-operation with Visit Isle of Wight and using Ordnance Survey cartography under licence, this new edition of our full colour cycle map of the Island (updated 2016) is overlaid with 15 clearly marked colour-coded cycle routes covering all ages and abilities, from multi-day circuits of the Island to short rides out, perfect for little legs. Take on the challenge of the Chalk Ridge Extreme along the Tennyson Trail, described by the Good Mountain Biking Guide as 'probably the best chalk trail in the UK' or head off on a Round the Island adventure, stopping off at visitor attractions and local eateries as you please. There are also plenty of gentle family rides, like the popular Red Squirrel Trail, which take you along disused rail lines and scenic estuaries, and along woodland tracks, rich in wildlife.

As well as the routes, the map includes details of bike shops and services - from bike hire and sales to emergency repairs, luggage transfer and tours and holidays - as well as a useful list of cycle-friendly accommodation across the Island, from hotels and cosy B&Bs to hostels and self-catering hideaways.

The map also features seven large-scale inset plans, showing cycle routes through the main town centres, and includes a range of useful visitor information from cafes and pubs to electric bike charge points, car parks, visitor attractions and viewpoints. In addition, the entire network of cycle paths and bridlepaths are also shown enabling cyclists to join together sections of routes or devise their own routes should they wish to do so.
