Things to do on the Isle of Wight

Areas to visit


We’re delighted to offer two Warner destinations on the Isle of Wight.

Our Norton Grange Coastal Village is located on the North-West of the island, just a short distance from Yarmouth – a port town where you’ll find beautiful, historic architecture. While the Bembridge Coast Hotel is situated on the Easterly coast, offering access to some of the island’s best beaches.

If you want to do a little exploring further afield during your stay, Cowes is a popular tourist town famed for its sailing, and Ventnor boasts a sunny micro climate and all the charm of a traditional seaside resort.

Hidden gems


Nothing quite makes a holiday like discovering a brilliant little restaurant or a gorgeous boutique store and, lucky for you, the Isle of Wight is packed with just this sort of local hidden gem. Some of our favourites are the Rosemary Vineyard and Compton Bay and Downs.

Rosemary Vineyard is perfectly positioned to enjoy the island’s mild climate and it produces a delicious selection of English wines which you can sample and buy. What better way is there to while away an afternoon?

Compton Bay and Downs is looked after by the National Trust, the area is one of the island’s largest expanses of downland and the beach below is simply beautiful - it’s the perfect place to blow away the cobwebs with a brisk walk along the coastline.

Garden Isle


With its stunning natural landscape and an abundance of flowers and plant life, the Isle of Wight has been lovingly nick-named, ‘Garden Isle’.

As well as the rugged beauty of the island, the Isle of Wight has a number of well-kept gardens open to the public. From the Ventnor Botanic Gardens, which make the most of the town’s Mediterranean climate, to the National Trust’s Mottistone Gardens, with a maze of hidden pathways and herbaceous borders – the Isle of Wight is a heaven for gardening enthusiasts.

Festivals and Events


During the summer months the Isle of Wight boasts a vibrant calendar of festivals. From contemporary music festivals to classic car shows – there’s even a wine festival – you’re sure to find something to suit every taste.

If you’re feeling energetic we recommend the Isle of Wight Cycling Festival, there are routes for all abilities or you can join in the fun at the cycle cinema – where film screenings are powered by your pedalling!

Or, if you’re looking for something with a gentler pace, why not visit the Real Ale Train? The quirky British event combines trains, good food and real ale – perfect!

Walking and Cycling Routes


Surrounded by all this natural beauty you’re sure to want to spend a significant amount of your time enjoying the great outdoors. To help you see the best of the island we have a selection of recommended walking and cycling routes.

Whether you prefer a 20 minute gentle stroll or a walk that’s closer to an hour long there’s a trail to suit you.

There’s so much to see and do on the island – all you have to do is decide where to start! Use our interactive map to help plan your perfect holiday.
