Isle of Wight Visitor Guide

Isle of Wight winter breaks

Now is a great time to enjoy a short break on the Isle of Wight. The months of February and March are a marvellous time to get away, after the hustle bustle of the main season, you can really enjoy the fabulous scenery the Island has to offer. We still have winter sunshine and the Island is packed with things to see and do, even if the weather takes the odd dip, with the Island’s many attractions. On a beautiful crisp day, explore the stunning countryside and coastline on foot or by bike.

The Island boasts miles of stunning coastline views and beaches to take a look at our beach guide. If the weather’s not so kind, discover a wealth of history and heritage or maybe visit a family-favourite such as The Needles or Sandown Pier.

Enjoy time on the Isle of Wight!

Visit the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is beautiful during the colder months, with the frost setting on the rolling hills. It’s a great time for a walk in the countryside or along a deserted beach. Winter months are great for family breaks and weekend getaways to England’s Garden Isle.

Our website aims to provide you with an excellent selection of hotels, b&b’s and self-catering properties. We only list a limited number of business in each section so you can easily find one that suits you and your family in no time. Enjoy your visit to the Isle of Wight. If you’re searching for things to do, then take a look at our  range of local attractions and events to find something that’s right for you.

Just an hour from the M25 and you can be a world away…

If you have never visited before then make 2018 the year that you discover England’s island destination. Just an hour’s drive from the M25 or a simple train ride and your short break has already begun, with a short crossing of the Solent by ferry or hovercraft.

Use our simple guides and see how easy it is to travel to the Isle of Wight from places like London, Brighton or Guildford – you could be on a ferry in less than an hour!

Stay on the Isle of Wight

Whether you’re travelling down for a day trip, short break or longer holiday, the Isle of Wight is the perfect place to explore, have fun and enjoy some well-earned rest. Try cycling or walking on some of the Island’s 60 miles of coastline and take in some breathtaking views at the same time, there are famously more miles of footpaths and bridleways than there are roads! It might be a bit fresh to take a dip in the sea on one of our pretty beaches and bays, but they are still wonderful for a coastal walk or perhaps try your hand at some water-sports from surfing to paddle-boarding.
