Introducing the
Isle of Wight

Discover unspoilt beaches, rugged coastline and beautiful countryside…a haven for walking, cycling, surfing and fun family days out – every day offers up new adventures

The Garden Isle

Known as the ‘Garden Isle’ because of its beautiful landscape scenery, discover unspoilt beaches, rugged coastline and beautiful countryside. More than half the Island is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and almost 30 miles of the seashore is designated as Heritage Coast – no wonder Keats, Tennyson and Dickens all found inspiration here.

Exploring the beauty of the Island is easy with over 500 miles of award-winning public footpaths and 200 miles of cycle paths. Whether you want to learn to sail, explore Queen Victoria’s summer home at Osborne House, horse ride along sandy beaches, watch the yachts race during Cowes Week, or enjoy a walk across cliff tops and enjoy a fresh ‘catch of the day’ – the Isle of Wight is the ultimate retreat from a busy life and even has its own little microclimate, making it the sunniest place in the UK, so you can truly enjoy your coastal break.

The West Wight

The West Wight is a sanctuary of rolling countryside, peaceful forests, picturesque villages and breathtaking coastal scenery; from the rugged white cliffs of Freshwater Bay to the historic market town of Yarmouth with its harbour for visiting yachtsmen and village shops, deli, fine restaurants and traditional pubs. The Tennyson Trail coastal walk takes you along weathered white cliffs with breathtaking views to the famous natural landscape, The Needles. Compton Bay’s long sandy beach is not only a popular spot for surfing and swimming, but also for its world famous dinosaur fossil finds. Families will enjoy the golden sands of Colwell Bay with its beach huts and water sports.

A rich history

The Island is rich in historical and archaeological sites ranging from prehistoric fossil beds which include dinosaur remains, to dwellings and artefacts of the Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman period. The Isle of Wight became an agricultural centre in Roman times, and at least seven Roman villas are known on the Island. During the English Civil War King Charles fled to the Isle of Wight believing he would receive sympathy from the governor but was incarcerated in Carisbrooke Castle – which is now home to displays illustrating human settlement on the Island from prehistoric times. Queen Victoria made the Isle of Wight her home for many years, making Osborne House her summer home and rural retreat.
