Enjoy stunning sights at Isle of Wight Walking Festival

Keen ramblers may fancy taking part in this year's Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which is taking place in May.

According to the Isle of Wight Council, the festival features about 250 guided and themed walks.

This includes gentle two to three-mile country rambles and tours through ancient towns and villages.

However, more adventurous walkers may want to try the 24-hour Round the Island walk, which the Isle of Wight Council described as "epic".

The authority said the festival has been designed to "encourage visitors to explore the island's areas of outstanding natural beauty and heritage coastline".

Every walk has been designed to cater for different fitness levels, ages and tastes, so it should appeal to regular hikers and casual walkers alike.

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival gets underway on May 8th and runs until May 23rd.

Ferry operator Red Funnel is among the companies sponsoring the event, along with Natural England, The National Trust and the Isle of Wight County Press.
