Isle of Wight Christmas Market

Ice skating, live entertainment and gifts galore at the new Isle of Wight Christmas Market

- Special Red Funnel fares for just £10 return –
- 1-23 December 2012 -

Tired of Christmas shopping on the same high street with the same shops and seemingly endless queues? Tire no more and cross over the Solent with Red Funnel this festive period to enjoy a unique shopping experience at the new Isle of Wight Christmas Market.

Taking place from 1-23 December 2013, the Island’s first Christmas market will see a wide range of arts, crafts and unique gifts on sale against the backdrop of the beautiful Island countryside. What’s more, Red Funnel Isle of Wight Ferries is offering return Red Jet foot passenger travel for just £10 for adults and £5 for children*. This price also includes return bus travel on the Island directly to the site of the market – making the Christmas shopping experience even easier!

Along with the abundance of beautiful wooden cabins selling all that’s needed to line a stocking, there will be a Dickensian High Street, Father Christmas’ Grotto, traditional hog roasts, live music from the bandstand, hot chocolate vendors and an ice rink; a fun day out for all the family.

Exhibitions include Sculptured Glass, Care in the Garden, Cakes for Occasions, Oil of Wight and the ever-tasty Waffle...licious. 

Getting to the Isle of Wight is easy with Red Funnel. Vehicle Ferries and Red Jet Hi-Speed foot passenger services run regularly around the clock from Southampton, which is within easy reach of the M3 and M27.
