The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight became popular in the Victorian era when Queen Victoria made Osborne House her home and, although just five miles from the mainland, it seems like another world. More than half of the Island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a network of footpaths stretching over 500 miles. Walking, cycling and riding are all on offer, as well as water sports, fishing and fossil hunting. Alternatively, there are numerous attractions including historic houses, art galleries, animal sanctuaries and beautiful gardens.
Once one of Britain's most famous Victorian health resorts, the picturesque seaside resort of Ventnor, situated on the most southern point of the Isle of Wight, is built on a series of terraces through which the town's roads zigzag down to the sea. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points, this charming town has a uniquely mild climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. Visitors to Ventnor will find a range of established local shops, selling books, antiques and many other items of interest, plus a good variety of pubs and restaurants. Fresh fish can be purchased daily from the small harbour, and the fine shingle and sandy beaches provide excellent facilities for water sports. The seafront's eastern promenade leads to Bonchurch, the Island's best-preserved Victorian village, much favoured by the prominent Victorian literati.
