The Isle of Wight

Ventnor BeachGodshillFreshwater BayOrchard Bay
Although it's only a short trip from the busy mainland, the Island feels different. It's got a gentler pace of life, yet offers so much to do. Walking, cycling and playing on the golden beaches will never be out of fashion, and naturally you can expect more sunshine than anywhere else in England. With many opportunities for surfing, para-gliding, wind-surfing and particularly sailing, this is a great holiday destination if you're after an adventure.

Winding down on the Island is always easy. Take some time to explore and enjoy the towns and villages of this historic island - and perhaps sample some of the best food and drink in the country. Watch local fishermen landing the day's catch at Bembridge or Ventnor, then enjoy seafood or fresh fish from the seaside cafes and restaurants. Or spend the day strolling through the meadows and downlands, then relax at one of the many country pubs serving mouth-watering Isle of Wight produce - perhaps Kemphill Farm beef, Island tomatoes, Dunsbury lamb or of course the world-famous Isle of Wight garlic.

The Island is also a place with a rich natural heritage. See fossilised forests and even dinosaur bones on the beaches and cliffs at Compton, or take a stroll in historic Parkhurst Forest to discover the haunts of the elusive red squirrel. Expect some unusual plants and animals as you explore the strange landscape of the Undercliff, and when you find the historic Cripple Path at Niton you can climb ancient steps cut into the inland cliff-face.

Surrounded by the waters of the English Channel, the Isle of Wight has long been a destination that appeals to visitors of all ages. The gentle countryside landscapes and miles of unspoiled coastline that drew the fashionable Victorians across the Solent are still as delightful today - and now more accessible than ever.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Isle of Wight...
