This guidebook describes 34 graded day walks, from 4 to 16 miles long, on the beautiful Isle of Wight. Long known as a sunny holiday destination, the island also has an incredible 525km (326 miles) of footpaths on an island of just 381 square kilometres (147 square miles), and there are more footpaths and bridleways than roads. Combine that with a variety of landscapes, big sea views round every corner, a mild, temperate climate and great public transport links and you have a walker's paradise.Nearly half the island is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and this guidebook takes the reader to previously unexplored areas such as Niton Undercliff, Parkhurst Forest and Ashey Down. Illustrated with OS map extracts and colour photography, and filled with information on the many historical sites on the island, such as Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle, this guidebook is all you need to explore the Isle of Wight on foot.
