A Vintage Vacation

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.

  • Shanklin

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.
