The Isle of Wight region
It's official – we get more of it! The lack of pollution here also means that those rays aren't filtered by any city grot, so bump up the sun screen protection factor!
There are facilities on the Island for virtually every water sport going, (with the possible exclusion of giant banana riding) with Cowes being internationally renowned for sailing and powerboat racing (and also pretty good for shopping). Cowes Week takes place every year in August with the JP Morgan Round the Island Race ensuring thousands of boats right around every viewpoint on the island is in June.
Isle of Wight Zoo (TV's Tiger Isle); Donkey Sanctuary; Blackgang Chine; Dinosaur Isle; Amazon World; the Isle of Wight Steam Railway; Lobster Safari; Brading Roman Villa, the list goes on.
Osborne House – Queen Victoria's favourite home; Dimbola Lodge, Julia Margaret Cameron's house, now a photographic museum and gallery; Quay Arts – the Island's main cultural arts centre; Farringford – Tennyson's home; Carisbrooke Castle; Quarr Abbey are just some places on the Island where you can get your cultural fix.
The Isle of Wight has some 500 miles of footpaths and bridleways and 60 miles of breathtaking Heritage Coast. Almost half the Island is categorised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within that are many Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It's almost a crime not to make the most of it.
Music can be found all over the island – from pubs to great venues such as the Shanklin Theatre - the event calendar peaking in June for the Isle of Wight Festival and again in September for Bestival.
Ventnor plays host to the annual Isle of Arts Festival at Easter as well as the Ventnor Fringe Festival during carnival week in August. The Isle of Wight Walking Festival takes place in May whilst the Cycling Festival happens each September.
Shanklin has the longest safe, sandy beach on the Isle of Wight with all the 'bucket and spade' attractions you'd expect for a perfect seaside holiday for all the family. Because it's so long the western end of the beach is actually dog friendly throughout the year which is a great boon for those wanting to bring their 'best friends' on holiday with them.
The town itself offers a wide selection of shops, café's and pubs, including those under the thatched roofs of picturesque Shanklin Old Village where the cream teas never run out.
There's even a thatched pub on the beach, just below lovely Shanklin Chine where you can take a shady walk if the beach gets too hot.
