The Isle of Wight has an ongoing programme of events and is home to some of the biggest festivals in England. The music festivals, including The Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival, draw in huge crowds and famous artists year after year during the summer period. However, if music isn’t your thing, the Isle of Wight Walking Festival (currently the biggest walking fest in the UK) occurs at Easter. Here, you will find some incredible hidden-away walking routes. After a hard day’s walk, what can be better than to return to the comfort of a well-equipped self-catering cottage and luxuriate in a hot bath or shower? 

Two major English historical characters made their home here - the Poet Laureate, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Queen Victoria. Victoria’s final home was Osborne House at East Cowes, where the house and gardens have been beautifully preserved and are open to viewers daily. The Isle of Wight is also renowned as one of the richest areas for Dinosaur discovery in Europe, subsequently earning it the title “Dinosaur Island”. This history has meant that some of the best Dinosaur museums are on the Isle of Wight, including the award-winning Dinosaur Isle. You can even get involved with fossil hunts to discover your fossils, which is ideal for a family day out.

If you’re looking for something more adventurous for your holiday, you can paraglide, race land yachts along the golden sands or go-kart across the all-weather track at Wight Karting. With miles of award-winning sand and shingle beaches, rugged cliffs, hidden coves, and clear waters, a trip to the beach is an essential part of any visit to the Island. Surrounded by the English Channel, the Isle of Wight has lots of beautiful beaches across its 57 miles of coastline. More than any other destination in England, over 17 have blue-flag and seaside awards in 2013.

Water sports are also particularly popular, and there are countless places to hire surfing equipment or kayaks. In addition, the first hovercraft was developed on the Island, so for a truly unique experience, hop on the Hovertravel, Isle of Wight’s Hovercraft service between the Island and Portsmouth.
