It serves this beautiful island, just off England’s south coast and less than 2 hours from London Waterloo across the stunning waters of the Solent.
Now a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve (one of only six in the UK), the island is recognised as one of the best places in the world to explore the sustainable way people interact with their natural environment.
There is a wealth of attractions and things to do on the Isle of Wight all year round: stunning beaches and harbours, wonderful food, festivals, dinosaur walks and museums. And, of course, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway.
Island Line trains take you from the port hub of Ryde Pier Head down to the beautiful coastal town of Shanklin, train journeys are simple and efficient, with services departing every 30 minutes. They’ll also get you from Ryde to Shanklin in about the same amount of time. Unmissable for train fans, the Island Line is connected to the famous Isle of Wight Steam Railway (at Smallbrook Junction).
Yarmouth, Cowes and Ryde Pier Head are the three ports on the island that ferries from the mainland usually pull into. So for journeys to the east side of the Isle of Wight, Ryde Pier head is the most convenient choice.
From February 2007 the Island Line franchise was merged with the South West Trains franchise on the mainland. Stagecoach was announced as the winner of the expanded franchise and operated Island Line as a South West Trains subsidiary. However, the Island Line name was retained, styled as Island Line Trains, and was promoted as a separate division of South West Trains. Island Line Trains also repainted stations in a heritage scheme of cream and green, as part of a general station improvement package.
