For a more traditional British holiday experience the Isle of Wight Zoo, Black Gang Chine and Robin Hill Park are just a few of the many venues that offer a great day out for young and old alike, and of course not forgetting the glorious sandy beaches for that lovely ‘day at the seaside’ experience.
Alternatively, if it’s culture you are looking for, the island can offer a vast array of historic venues; Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, St Catherine’s Lighthouse and Brading Roman Villa being just a few. If you want to delve even further into the past the Isle of Wight Dinosaur Museum offers organised fossil hunting trips during the school holidays.
