The Isle of Wight is unlikely to be in a millennial’s must visit locations of 2017 however, after a spontaneous visit last year, it presents a great place for a chilled out time away at the British seaside. Here are my top five things to do on the Isle of Wight:
- Vintage accommodation
There is plenty of accommodation to choose from on the Isle of Wight but I’d suggest staying at Vintage Vacations. A collection of classic vintage airstream caravans and tee pee tents offer a unique accommodation experience. With home made cup cakes and a glass of baby cham on arrival as well as a post card to send home to relatives about your adventures, this home from home is a fantastic place to stay.
- The Garlic Farm
A great afternoon out with the chance to walk in the grounds of the farm, learn about garlic (there’s actually quite a lot to know) and sit down and enjoy a garlic platter. Just don’t forget some mints for when you’ve finished eating!
- The Needles
Take the cable car to the beach and see the needles for yourself on the south-west edge of the island. Enjoy the coloured sands, local crafts and fair games in this throwback to your childhood.
Visit the seaside town of Shanklin and explore Shanklin Chine, visit the pubs along the beach front and play a round of crazy golf in this seaside town.
- Gunwharf Keys
Before boarding the Wight Ferry across to the island visit Gunwharf Keys and the Spinnaker tower for bargain filled shopping and great views over the city.
