Any Footpassenger Passes To & From Portmouth ?

We are visiting the Isle of Wight next week - ariving by train into Portsmouth /Southsea station.

Could someone please advise the best cheapest way to arrive at Ryde by ferry/hovercraft as a foot passenger. Also, is there some kind of 'hopper' pass available should we wish to make trips back & to, across to Portsmouth (thinking of visiting a relative there, possibly a couple of times). Our trip is Monday departing Saturday. Any advice would be really appreciated.

If you have a Network railcard you get 30% off Wightlink when you buy your rail ticket. You just book through to whichever train station on the Island you want. Family railcards also give the discount, so I expect other types will as well.

If using Wightlink you travel to Portsmouth Harbour.

P&S is nearest for Hovertravel.

If you want to go to the mainland during your stay, book from Ryde Esplanade using the Railcard.

Railcards cost around £25-30 and last a year.
