Free Attraction Tickets in National Ferry Fortnight Offer

05-05-2017  Red Funnel Ferries has joined forces with The Needles Landmark Attraction to attract visitors to the Isle of Wight in this year’s National Ferry Fortnight from 6-20 May 2017.

To celebrate National Ferry Fortnight, Red Funnel is offering a pair of FREE tickets to ride the iconic chairlift at The Needles Landmark attraction with every private vehicle booking made between 6 & 20 May for travel up to 29 October 2017.

Organised by the industry body Discover Ferries, which represents 12 major ferry operators in the UK and Ireland, National Ferry Fortnight celebrates the destinations served by ferries in the UK and highlights the facilities and range of things to do aboard modern ferries operated by companies like Red Funnel.

Jonathan Green, marketing and communications director for Red Funnel commented “A holiday on the Isle of Wight, whether travelling by car or public transport is a great alternative to the stressful queues at airports and being squashed into a small seat on a plane for several hours. More of us are rediscovering the advantages of holidaying in the UK with the ability to pack the car with lots of baggage including bikes, kayaks, and pets and still have room for the grandparents!”

2017 is the Year of Family Adventures on the Isle of Wight, and a visit to The Needles Landmark Attraction is just the start of the adventures that await. From firm family favourites such as Blackgang Chine, Robin Hill, Carisbrooke Castle and Isle of Wight Steam Railway, to a walk on the wild side at the likes of Isle of Wight Zoo, Tapnell Farm Park, Isle of Wight Monkey Haven or West Wight Alpacas, the Island is packed with top visitor attractions for all ages, many offering discounted admission via Red Funnel. You can also get active from zorbing to paddle-boarding, cycling to go karting and tree climbing to sailing.

The Isle of Wight is perfectly placed for a weekend break or a longer stay. There’s accommodation to suit every taste and budget including lighthouses, idyllic holiday cottages, camping pods, treehouses, boutique hotels with sumptuous fine dining as well as award-winning holiday parks. And getting there couldn’t be easier. Red Funnel offers up to 90 departures a day from Southampton and has one-night away fares starting from £54 for any car with up to 7 people.
