Evenings and weekends
Whatever your interests, the Isle of Wight will almost certainly have something to keep you occupied. This vibrant Island offers one of the fullest calendars of events you will find anywhere in the UK with festivals and events happening almost every weekend throughout the Summer and around the year. Details of events can be found at visitisleofwight.co.uk
You'll find 13 award winning beaches on the Isle Wight, including 3 blue flag winners. In the Summer the island is perfect for relaxing and topping up the tan.
There are a number of festivals held on the Island in the Summer months. These include the well-known Isle of Wight Festival held over 3 days in June (welcoming roughly 50,000 people per year) and Bestival which is regarded as the ‘hippy’ event of the year and other events such as the Garlic festival in August.
Famously the place where King Charles I was imprisoned. The castle has survived for more than 800 years, including seeing off the Spanish Armada.
If you fancy a fun day out for all the family, there is an adventurous countryside Attraction Park with play areas, nature and wildlife, woodlands gardens and falconry.
