Hi - I am going to London for a vacation for 10 days along with my wife, 3 year old kid and parents (Age in 60s).. Ouf of 10 days, I am staying in London for 8 days and have kept 2 days in between open to travel to a beach destination near London.. I am confused between Brighton & Isle of Wight but after reading TA am getting more inclined to travel to IOW for 2 nights.. I have a few questions on which I was looking for answers:
I would prefer a direct train from London to a port near IOW (Which station should I choose), I and my family really dont want to change trains?
How can I book ferry tickets, Do I have to do it in advance or once I get down at a train station I can buy tickets, which option would be cheaper and easier?
As I have 2 days only (which should have been more but unfortunately I booked non refundable rooms in LON :-(... so which part of IOW would be ideal to stay in which would be closer to major attractions, I have heard places there are fun places for kids in IOW
We are looking for a nice hotel which would be closer to the ferry point that takes us back to the train station from where we need to take our train back to London, again, prefer no train changes on our way back..
With Kindest Regards
