Long days on the beach, extreme sports, wine tasting and a top foodie scene, there are plenty of amazing things to do on the Isle Of Wight! Find out more in this Isle of Wight blog filled with fab tips for your time on the island.
My relationship with the Isle of Wight began around 20 years ago. I was at primary school and about to embark on my biggest trip yet. Along with 25 other kids, I hopped on a coach, then a ferry and spent a few days on the seemingly exotic island.
I was 10, and for me, this was like the Caribbean. We played games on Shanklin beach, visited Osborne House, and spent a day at theme park Blackgang Chine. I have very happy memories from the trip. Flash forward 20 years and here I was boarding WightRider 2 (the ferry) from Portsmouth to Ryde. Over the next 3 days I’d be reliving some childhood memories and, fingers crossed, be creating a few new ones!
If you’re visiting the Isle of Wight soon I hope you find my guide helpful! Feel free to leave any questions or comments at the end.
