We personally love Sandown. It is unspoiled and untouched by all the commercial rip-offs that usually go hand in hand with seaside resorts. We are travelling over from the mainland to get married there on 22nd May 2012 at the lovely quaint Parkbury Hotel, with photos on the beach (weather permitting) followed by an evening meal at Caulkheads. The whole wedding party is staying at the Sandown Chalets in Avenue Road.

Sandown is one of the most popular towns on the Isle of Wight with tourists from all over the world, largely due to its wide variety of attractions, including its iconic pier.

The Pier hasn't changed a huge amount since I was young, the main difference being that the theatre part has been closed. Yes, Sandown's only venture into culture (apart from the library) is no more. I once saw Norman Wisdom there as well! Thats culture for you! The Pier now boasts a myriad of ways to lose ... Read the complete review

We visited Culver Pier after it advertised great things in our tourist guide. At first you walk into a very well looked after amusement arcade with every type of bandit and video game you could ever want! There is also a bar situated in there which we didn't go into due to have our toddler with us and an indoor childrens soft play area. We were going to take our son into the play area but it is up quite a few stairs and you have to leave your pushchair at the bottom which we weren't too happy about so decided not to bother. I'm sure it wouldn't of got stolen but didn't like the risk. There is an indoor crazy golf which looked good for ... Read the complete review
