Autumn Walking Festival

7th August 2023

Whether you like to ramble, roam, march, hike or stroll, the Isle of Wight Walking Festival on 7th - 15th October is a wonderful way to explore the varied landscapes, thriving wildlife and rich heritage the Island has to offer.

On Wednesday 11 October, 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 Autumn Walking Festival and aims to raise money for one of our chosen charities - the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
