With soaring cliffs, long sandy beaches and bustling resorts, it’s no wonder that this charming island has been popular with holiday makers for hundreds of years. It is easy to see why it was a beloved haven for Queen Victoria and also the inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s magical Alice in Wonderland. Take a step back in time with us on this special island.

Walk in the steps of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert this morning with a visit to the former royal residence of Osborne House (EH). Explore the stately interiors and beautiful grounds leading down to the sea, with its own Swiss cottage imported for the royal children to play in. This afternoon continue to the lovely and unspoilt West Wight, from the charming port of Yarmouth, to the famous Needles Landmark - the most iconic scene on the island.


Begin today with a trip back to the golden age of steam on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Settle in for your round-trip journey from Havenstreet in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages for a view of the Island’s unspoilt countryside and ancient woodland. Continue to the charming village of Godshill with time to wander amongst the thatched cottages, lovely boutiques and tea rooms or perhaps visit the model village.


Enjoy a day at leisure today to explore your central location in the bustling resort of Ryde. From the traditional pier and promenade, individual boutiques and shops to great cafes and restaurants you are spoilt for choice. It’s easy to get out and about with the railway and bus station close by, or for something a little different, why not hop on the amazing Hovercraft service which whisks you across the Solent to Southsea in just 10 minutes!


Time to head for home today, starting with your short ferry crossing back to the mainland.
