Are you looking for a ferry to Newport Isle of Wight? Here is everything that you need to know.

Unfortunately you cannot get a ferry connection straight to Newport in the Isle of Wight as Newport is in land. However there are bus services from each of the Isle of Wight’s ferry ports to Newport if you are walking, or if you are driving it is only a short drive of between 20 and 30 minutes. So all that is left for you to do is decide which port to sail in to. There are two ferry operators’ offerings crossings to the Isle of Wight, Wightlink and Red Funnel. However, if you are trying to get to Newport then you’re best to use Wightlink as their ports are closer to Newport.

Wightlink sails between the mainland and the Isle of Wight up to 230 times a day on three routes: their car ferries cross between Lymington and Yarmouth and from Portsmouth to Fishbourne in as little as 35 minutes, while modern catamarans zip over to Ryde from Portsmouth in around 22 minutes. If you are on foot, Portsmouth to Ryde is a quick and convenient crossing for foot passengers and has great rail and coach connections. The Lymington route is the faster of the two car ferry routes and drops you on the doorstep of the New Forest or the IOW's west coast. Portsmouth to Fishbourne boasts excellent road connections to the rest of the UK and the East of the Isle of Wight including Newport. All three routes are quick and comfortable.
