With over half its land mass designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a warmer climate, the Isle of Wight has been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times. The Isle of Wight is separated from mainland England by the Solent, a stretch of sea famed for top class sailing and water sports.
The Isle of Wight is steeped in history; from dinosaur fossils found along the south coast, and the remains of a Roman Villa at Brading, to King Charle II's castle at Carisbrooke. It was also home to the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Queen Victoria who spend a lot of time at her home at Osborne House.
The Island caters well for visitors. There are many beautiful country and coastal walks and cycle paths, village pubs and good quality restaurants and shops.
