Things To Do

On The Isle Of Wight

The beautiful Isle of Wight is a stunning area of outstanding natural beauty, formed on an island just off the south coast of England. It’s known for it’s beautiful beaches and seafront promenades, such as the sandy Shanklin Beaches and southern facing beaches at Ventnor : which can be found dotted with vintage beach huts.

Aptly named the Dinosaur Isle after fossils & remains were found and can be seen in areas like Compton Bay and Yaverland Beach. Take a trip to the island’s western point and you can enjoy The Needles – Three huge, white chalk rocks, guarded by a 19th-century lighthouse.

Regardless of the weather, there is always something fun to do here on the Isle Of Wight. Whether it’s the beach, the sea or just plain activities that will make your day, we can have everything prepared for you and your family.


Steam Railway

Your visit to The Award-Winning Isle of Wight Steam Railway will engage, inspire and excite you … The sight of powerful majestic steam engines, the charm of quiet rural stations, and the friendliness of traditionally uniformed staff, will leave you with some enduring memories of a special day out.
For the family and casual visitor, we offer a unique and exciting day out, as you step back to a bygone era when steam power was the order of the day. We are one of Britain’s Heritage Railways and a registered educational charity, but we’re also much more besides.



There’s So Much More To It…

We’ve been growing garlic on the Isle of Wight ever since Granny Norah planted those first few cloves in her garden over 50 years ago. We have spent all the years since exploring its history and origins, experimenting with the many different varieties here on “the Island” and creating many garlic infused products from chutney to beer and ice cream.

Natasha and her husband Barnaby now oversee the day-to-day business operations while Colin and Jenny remain actively involved in the business. The amazingly hard working and dedicated Garlic Farm team is growing with the business and reaches up to 70 people in the height of the summer season.

Holiday Home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert

Osborne is the palatial former holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, located on the Isle of Wight. Relax in the open air as you wander rolling acres of the magnificent Osborne estate. Take in the riotous colours of the walled garden, or enjoy the peaceful shade of the woodland walk – be sure to keep an eye out for red squirrels. Visit Victoria and Albert’s bathing beach and admire their children’s play-cottage for an intimate glimpse of royal family life. Stroll through the garden terraces and take in the same stunning views across the Solent that once reminded Prince Albert of the Bay of Naples.
