About the Isle of Wight
For many, the Isle of Wight is the quintessential British seaside destination. The island saw a surge in popularity in the Victorian era. Queen Victoria had a holiday residence on the Isle of Wight - as a result of this the Isle of Wight became popular with the aristocrats and celebrities of the day.
Spend the day wandering round Osborne House and gardens, be adventurous at the Blackgang Chine amusement park or simply while away the hours relaxing on one of the island's many beaches.
There is also an almost unlimited choice of fine beaches, many of which have won blue flag awards for their cleanliness and quality.
The Isle of Wight dramatic yet beautiful cliffs and coastlines to the west of the island and the clear waters of the Isle of Wight beaches that are perfect for a quintessentially British summer family holiday.
Travel on the Isle of Wight
You can get around the island in a variety of ways. Local company Wightbus runs a regular service between the main towns (though maybe it is a symptom of the increasing quirkiness of the island that the buses don't actually use a proper timetable). There is also a small stretch of railway, running from Ryde to Sandown. This is interesting, because it is run entirely using ex London Underground trains, most of which are nearly 100 years old. For the young and the young at heart, there is also a small steam railway which is well worth a visit.
Moving away from trains and buses, there is of course the option of using a car, though a lot of the roads are very narrow. By far the best way of seeing the island has to be via bike: the island has nearly 250 miles of cycle path and several organised trails which will take you from one location to another with relative ease.
