The Isle of Wight and literary greatness go hand in hand. Lewis Carroll found inspiration in the golden sands of Sandown, Lord Tennyson made Freshwater his home and King Charles I used the Island as a creative source for his poetry.
The Isle of Wight Literary Heroes Trail will take you on a journey around the Island, discovering locations where famous writers spent their summers, played out their childhood days and, of course, the places that influenced some of the most celebrated works in history.
Taking you from well-hidden villages to busy seaside towns, the trail is the perfect way to explore the Isle of Wight’s rich history. Use the interactive map above to plan your journey and discover the literary links to each stop.
