Places to stay in Isle of Wight

The largest island in England, the Isle of Wight has been a popular tourist destination for hundreds of years. With a rugged coastline and beautiful scenery - in fact, more than half the island is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - and charming towns and villages to discover, there is always plenty to see and do.

The Isle of Wight Festival is one of the most famous reasons to visit the island, but there are many more permanent tourist attractions - the zoo, the steam railway, the Dinosaur Isle museum and Carisbrooke Castle are just a few.

Five Free Things To Do In The Isle Of Wight

Quarr Abbey
This working monastery, set in scenic surroundings between Binstead and Fishbourne, invites visitors to observe the monks' tranquil way of life and view the art on display in its gallery.

Quay Arts
Quay Arts is the Isle of Wight's leading art gallery and regularly serves as a venue for live arts events. There's also a theatre and café/bar on site.

Beaches
There are 11 award-winning beaches on the island, so you're never far away from golden sands and clean water if you fancy a dip. Compton Bay is a popular spot with surfers, while Sandown Beach is great for families.

Shanklin Old Village
Part of the town of Shanklin, the Old Village has some of the oldest dwellings on the island. Seeing the thatched roofs and quaint tearooms is like stepping back in time.

Donkey sanctuary
The Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary is a great place for kids to get close to animals - they can even stroke the donkeys! While entry is free, donations are appreciated to help the sanctuary continue its important work.
