– Winter 2016 edition out now –

Wightlink Isle of Wight Ferries has launched its latest edition of Wightlife Magazine. The winter issue highlights the many possibilities for visitors to take advantage of on the Isle of Wight during the coming months.

Detailing some of the most exciting activities and attractions the Island has to offer during the winter season, this popular free magazine is the essential guide for all visitors, whether in the planning stages of a trip, already sailing with Wightlink across the Solent or looking to make the most of their time on the Island.

“There is so much to see and do during the colder months on the Isle of Wight, and this edition shows that the Island is open for business all year round,” comments Mark Persad, Head of Marketing for Wightlink Ferries. “I am very pleased to be launching an issue that provides everything a visitor needs to know, whether visiting for the first time or returning for another trip. Winter is a fantastic time to visit the Island, with fewer people and a quieter pace of life, but still with all the natural beauty and cheerful winter wonderland spirit the Island has to offer.”

The winter 2016 edition of Wightlife includes information on how families can discover the ‘Handmade Isle’, making the most of the large community of artisans and contemporary makers who create original products on the Island, with many opportunities to pick up unique gifts for loved ones. It also details where they can find Santa Claus – see page 20 for clues. It is packed with ideas on all types of activities, entertainment and attractions, both old and new, as well as recommendations for where to eat and drink whilst exploring the wintery charm of the Isle of Wight.

Readers are also encouraged to enter this season’s bumper competition to win an extra special short break to the Isle of Wight worth £600, including activities, lunch and accommodation for two, with more information found on page 41 of Wightlife magazine.

Available as a glossy magazine on board all Wightlink ferries, online, as an app to download to your device or to order directly to your home, everyone can access this invaluable FREE guide to planning their next Island adventure.
