Discover The Isle of Wight

Discover The Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is the perfect laid-back alternative to a South-Coast holiday. Located just three miles off the Hampshire coast, it feels an eternity away from the bustle of the mainland.

With its wonderfully sunny climate, you are guaranteed sunshine during the summer months. This is the perfect time to head to any of its 17 award-winning beaches, including four which have been awarded the prestigious blue flag. It’s no wonder the Isle of Wight is considered to have one of the best coastlines in Europe.

For a more cultured experience, discover the island’s rich history and heritage with a visit to the palatial Osborne House, built as a holiday retreat for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert or enjoy Blackgang Chine, an award-winning amusement park dating back to 1843.
