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. The island has the highest number of award-winning beaches in England, all managed to the highest standards and inspected.
If you haven’t been yet, then you really should! And if you have been, then why not go again? There’s always more to explore and discover on our very own holiday island...

‘Around The Island’ Tour
Rounding the Island, we pass through the superbly positioned village of Ventnor, one of the sunniest spots on the Island and built on a series of terraces that climb steeply towards St Boniface Down, from where there are spectacular views across the Bay. We move on, passing through the Island’s southernmost tip and the village of Chale, before arriving at Alum Bay at the Island’s western tip. The sandstone cliffs here are made up of twenty-one colours and it is from here that the Island’s most notable feature can be most clearly seen - the ‘Needles’, three giant chalk stacks, one of which is crowned with a lighthouse. Leaving Alum Bay we visit Yarmouth, a quiet town with a pretty harbour, stone quays, old houses and a 16th century castle built by Henry VIII.
“It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot” said Queen Victoria of Osborne House, her palatial holiday home on the Isle of Wight. Visit Victoria and Albert’s private apartments, their bathing beach and children’s play-cottage for an intimate glimpse of royal family life. Then stroll through the garden terraces where the stunning views across the Solent reminded Prince Albert of the Bay of Naples. The Royal Collection fills rooms and corridors where Victoria entertained heads of state, inventors, princes and princesses all whilst ruling the vast British Empire.
