Isle of Wight in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... books. It also had a tea room which at the time of our visit held the prize for best cream tea on the Isle of Wight - this is hotly contested each year so it remains to be seen who gets this year's title! Recommended as a half-day visit, and a great rainy day activity, but be ready to part with a fair bit of money if you want to decorate the pottery. SANDOWN / YAVERLAND It wasn't long before we gave in to the urge to visit our favourite stretch of beach, at Yaverland , which is just to the east of Sandown . There's a pay and display car park here, which is free for blue badge holders (this is true of most Island car parks in fact), and... more

I have a long history with the Isle of Wight . Although my first visit was at the tender age of one, my family connection goes back a lot further, as my Mum's mum and her family going back a few generations were natives of this lovely place. Mum and her sister were brought up in Gurnard and Cowes , and it was her Dad, and by then her Step-Mum, that we used to go and stay with in Cowes when I was a child. Now, it's me and my own family that visit, sadly now visiting graves rather than relatives, although we have managed to keep in touch with one of Mum's best friends from school. The Isle of Wight , for those who may not know, is situated south of Southampton ... Read the complete review

The Isle of Wight is somewhere I find difficult to stay away from! Situated near to the Portsmouth coast, the Isle of Wight is a surprisingly large island with many spectacular views and scenery. You can reach the Island from Portsmouth and Southampton using either a ferry or a hovercraft (the only place in the country to have hovercrafts in active service). These go to Yarmouth, Cowes and Ryde on the Island. The main towns on the Isle of Wight are Ryde, Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor which stretch from the North-East part of the island, down the East coast to the South-East. Newport is situated roughly in the middle of the island, with Cowes just ... Read the complete review

Rather than go on about the thousands of places that there are to visit on the Isle of Wight, I thought I'd base my review on the 'Seven Wonders' of the Isle of Wight. The people of the Isle of Wight are quite proud of their wonders - that is if you are to believe the countless postcards, tea towels and other souvenirs with them emblazoned accross! There is some debate though as to how many there are, some say six, some say seven and some say eight. However, in accordance with the wonders of the world, I've always believed there were seven and here they are: 1. Cowes - you cannot milk Is a small town at the top of the island where the ...

The Isle of Wight........ Fancy a short break away where you don't have to travel too far? Well the Isle of Wight is surely the place to go! It is only a 50 minute car ferry ride or a 15 minute Hovercraft ride from Portsmouth but when you arrive you will feel like you have travelled for over 50 year, back in time! The Isle of Wight, also known as "The Garden Isle" feels like a sanctuary from the modern world of "The Mainland". With no motorways and not much hussle and bussle it really is the perfect place the relax and unwind and I must say, for me, the perfect place to live. There really is so much to see and ...

i used to visit family at portsmouth and regularly visited the isle of wight,we travelled there by catamaran,it was a choice of that or hover craft. once setting foot on the island it felt like another world,it was stunning and so picturesque,it reminded me of a picture on a postcard and i found it to be the most peacefull place ive ever come accross almost heavenly,it has clifftops where you can view the beech below and lookout for miles,there is a train that takes you to all the different places on the island,which was so handy as we would spend the whole day there.shanklin will always be my favourite really enjoy it there. there are quaint little ...
