Isle of wight walking festival speed dating
According to the organisers the 'speed dating' has proved very successful - with four weddings and a baby - so far from people that popped the question after meeting on the walk.
Apparently women always sign-up early and men at the last minute, which gives the organisers a few concerns each year, so if you are an unattached male this is one to consider.
Other companies have later come on to support the event such as Red Funnel and Southern Vectis who now provide free travel for walkers.
By signing up to one of the unique events you're opening yourself up to opportunities of meeting people you may not have otherwise crossed paths with.
Many people find it easier to bring a friend along and depending on the event you choose, you can bring someone to boost your confidence and make the evening more enjoyable!
As you can imagine, these events are rising in popularity and so you'll have to book your place to avoid disappointment.
Speed dating is one of the many attractions of the largest walking festival in the UK which is on the Isle of Wight 26-29 October and supported by View Ranger.
The festival features over 60 good walks ranging from a short guided fossil hunt to the 'round isle route' which takes several days.
