The Isle of Wight is the biggest and second most popular island in England and is perfect for island family holidays. Situated in the English channel just off the coast of Hampshire, the Isle of Wight is separated from the mainland by the Solent. Just over half the island is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and for good reason. The scenery and views from the island are magnificent.
Newport, located in the centre of the island, is the county town with plenty of shopping and dining on offer. For a seaside experience with child friendly hotels, Ryde is a beautiful Victorian town, of interest as it has the oldest seaside pier in England and miles of beaches. Those interested in sailing will enjoy Cowes, which has an international sailing centre.
Tourism on the Isle of Wight focuses on its natural heritage, offering both wildlife and scenic locations, but there is a range of great activities available for all. Take the children to Dinosaur Isle in Sandown, a fascinating dinosaur museum overlooking Sandown’s blue flag beach. Head to Chale to enjoy Blackgang Chine, a fantasy theme park situated in 40 acres of Victorian cliff-top gardens. Kids can enjoy a cowboy town, pirate fort and dinosaur-land. The older children will love the Cliffhanger roller coaster and family boat ride.
All in all, the Isle of Wight is a great family destination offering the best in baby friendly accommodation for perfect peace of mind.
