Travelling with Red Funnel to the Isle of Wight Festival...

Travelling to the Isle of Wight Festival

Our home port of Southampton is the gateway to the Isle of Wight Festival with the official campsite and dedicated Red Funnel festival car park just a few minutes' drive from our East Cowes ferry terminal.

You are guaranteed a warm welcome when you travel with us and thanks to live entertainment, your festival starts the moment you arrive at the port. Our fares are not based on the number travelling in your car so why not pack the kitchen sink and split the costs with friends.

If you prefer to travel on foot, you can choose between our Hi-Speed Red Jet service to West Cowes (takes 25 mins at 37 knots with up to 3 departures an hour) or you can soak in the sea air and cruise to East Cowes onboard the largest ferries on the Solent (takes 55-60 mins with 1 sailing per hour).

Festival shuttle bus transfers operate from East and West Cowes to the festival campsite and unique to East Cowes, a River Shuttle service will wisk you along the river Medina to a special landing by the festival campsite - definitely the coolest way to arrive!
