Top ten things to do on the Isle of Wight
- For some culture – visit Osborne House, the former royal residence, in East Cowes where you can take a carriage drive, explore the grounds, lunch in the Terrace Restaurant and of course tour the house.
- Brading Roman villa is also well worth a visit. The mosaic floors have been recently covered by a state of the art building.
- The Monkey Haven on the outskirts of Newport provides a great day out where you can see the different rescued primates and other animals. http://www.monkeyhaven.org/
- Take a hike from the farm up to the Worsley monument from where you will have excellent views of most of the island and glimpses of the south coast.
- Walk from the farm to the village through Beech Copse, visit the Model Village in Godshill and then spoil yourself with a cream tea.
- Indulge yourself at the Taverners (01983 840707) or Woods Kitchen (01983 840909).
- The Botanic gardens in Ventnor is a place where the pleasure of plants can be enjoyed to the fullest and where people of all ages can learn more about the wonderful world of plants and the inextricable link that we have with them.
- Feel the sand between your toes and the gentle sea breeze on the superb sandy beaches such as Compton Bay on the south coast or in the resorts of Shanklin, Sandown or Ventnor.
- Help the local economy and treat yourself to some local produce from the island’s farm shops such as Farmer Jacks in Arreton and Brownriggs in Godshill.
- Book a llama trek!!
