Adding Colour To Your Short Break on the Isle of Wight
For an island just 23 miles wide and 13 miles deep, the Isle of Wight packs in a surprising variety of attractions. Best known for sandy beaches and a dramatic coastline, it is also famous as the Garden Island, where rare plants, vineyards and natural produce flourish because of the mild climate and remarkably diverse rural landscape. The IOW also boasts a rich cultural heritage stretching from Roman times up to the present day and the annual Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival.
Short breaks have long been popular on an Island that is just a short hop across the Solent from the UK mainland. But, with so much variety on offer, why not make this a themed break – where the focus of your trip coincides with one of your main interests?
