If you’d prefer a more sedate experience on your Isle of Wight holidays, however, you’re still in the right place. More than half of the island has been designated an area of outstanding beauty, so you can expect a host of stunning natural landscapes to marvel at. But this is also a great place to find delightful country and seaside pubs, fine restaurants, historic houses and art galleries.

Do you need some more specific examples of the wealth of things to do and see on your Isle of Wight holidays? Well, why not take in such beaches as Compton Bay, Freshwater Bay or Ryde Beach? Or perhaps it’s animal attractions like the Isle of Wight Zoo or Owl & Monkey Haven that would be more to your liking?

Or, for an Isle of Wight attraction unlike any other, pay a visit to Fort Victoria, a single tier battery with defensible barracks that was constructed on the island’s north shore in the 1850s to guard the Solent. Later used for military training as well as a submarine mining centre, it’s now home to various individual attractions in addition to making a fine historical attraction in its own right.
