Situated 4 miles off England’s South Coast, the Isle of Wight is the UK’s holiday island. This diamond shaped island is a true gem and was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite spots. Over 60 miles of stunning coastal scenery and quaint villages will appeal to all ages and create lasting memories. Attractions are in plentiful supply on the island, with something to suit everyone. Get a taste of the Isle of Wight’s history and culture by visiting one of the Museums or historic sites. The most recognisable landmark is The Needles Rocks and Lighthouse. A visit to the Isle of Wight wouldn’t be complete without visiting some of its famous beaches and the island has the highest number of award-winning beaches in England.

The Needles & Alum Bay

As soon as you think of the Isle of Wight the iconic image of the Needles springs to mind, the Islands' most famous landmark attraction which you will get to enjoy in conjunction with views over Alum Bay, best known for its multi-coloured sand cliffs and stunning views across the Solent. Some 60 million years ago movement in the bedrock caused underwater sediments to be pushed nearly vertical to form the multi-coloured cliffs that are visible today.

Sandown & Ryde

Sandown is a busy resort, flatter than Shanklin with a fine beach and all kinds of seaside resort attractions to keep you entertained.

The largest town on the Island, Ryde has fine Georgian and Victorian buildings, shops, tea-rooms, pubs, restaurants, and a marina. The sea-wall promenade provides a popular walk, passing the Victorian watchtower on the way to Puckpool Park.

Ventnor Botanical Gardens

Ventnor Botanic Garden lies at the heart of a remarkable microclimate on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. Protected by the chalk downs of the Ventnor Undercliff, it boasts an impressive collection of rare, subtropical and exotic plants. Normally found in protected glasshouses, these plants thrive in geographical plantings based on the Mediterranean zones of the world. Begin your day with a meander through the Med garden, then go down under in the Australian and New Zealand Gardens. In the afternoon, chill out with the cacti and agave in the Arid Garden and then find some sun in the South African Terraces.
