The Isle of Wight is arguably the smallest ceremonial county in England, but it packs a punch for scenery and events. Whatever you are looking for this intriguing island seems to provide! Events on the Isle of Wight include such delights as Music Festivals, Walking Festivals, Cycling Festivals and the list goes on and on.

Newport is the capital. Cowes is the centre of sailing, arguably in the United Kingdom and the world, Ryde is a sandy seaside resort and an entrance for the ferries from Portsmouth. Sandown and Shanklin have two of the prettiest beaches. Ventnor is a joy, if hilly. Places worth visiting are aplenty, some lovely hideaways not mentioned here!
