How to Move to the Isle of Wight

Is moving to the Isle of Wight something that you have been thinking about? Read on to find out what you need to know about the place and how Isle of Wight Removals can help you get there.

Getting to Know Your New Home

Want to load up and hop on the ferry to get away from it all? There’s nothing better than heading down to the seaside for a glass of wine and unwind after finishing work on a hot summers day. The Isle of Wight is just what you need!

If you’re searching for a smooth move to the Isle of Wight, our facilities can store all of your belongings while you take some extra time to explore the area.

What Can You Do While Your're There?

When you’ve packed your things and made your way to the Isle, it’s now time to take a look around and see what there is to do. You may want to consider some of the local favourites:

  • The Ventnor Botanic Garden is a great place to start, it was founded in 1970 and showcases subtropical plants and trees from all around the world.

  • During the summer for 4 days the Isle of Wight Festival takes over the island and celebrates the British music scene.

  • You can expect to see many Volkswagen campervans in a relaxed experience during the V-Dub Island music festival.

  • In the Isle of Wight’s most southern town, a week-long festival pops up and takes over every space available and celebrates the comedy and gigs of the Ventnor Fringe Festival.

The Beach Life

On the island, you will be spoilt with a large number of beaches. Each one has its own set of perks but you’ll be able to find a beach in every single direction. Pretty much all the way around the whole island you’ll find many walk paths that run along the coast. This is probably considered the biggest advantage of living there.

Food, Glorious Food

This island is packed with award-winning restaurants and pubs. Also, the produce grown by the local farms is well known across the country. If you look hard enough you’ll discover the island’s hidden gems that only the locals know about and, of course, some of the UK’s best eateries.

What About The Schools?

There are a variety of choices for schools. Most of the primary schools are rated ‘good’. There are a few that ‘require improvement’ and one has been rated as ‘inadequate’. For the other schools that are available, you really need to do your homework. Secondary schools on the island range from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’.

But, How Do You Get There?

Despite its location, the island has surprisingly good links for transportation. In under an hour you can reach Southampton or Portsmouth by using the port of Cowes ferry, this makes both cities an easy commute for work. To get to the heart of London, it is just a 2 hour ride by ferry and train.
