Situated off the south coast of England, the enchanting Isle of Wight has seafront promenades and golden sands with all the fun of the seaside as well as pretty parks, a sweeping coastline and quaint thatch-roofed villages.

Dinosaur remains can be found in places like Compton Bay and the island has a museum exhibiting over a thousand relics taking visitors from the Ice Age to the recent past. Perhaps uncover a millennia of history at Carisbrooke Castle, a motte and bailey fortress where Charles I was imprisoned prior to his trial.

This holiday is based in Shanklin, a charming Victorian town and popular resort set against a dramatic backdrop of sandstone cliffs with a wide sandy beach sprinkled with colourful beach huts. The bustling esplanade is jam-packed with seaside amusements and cafés.

Alternatively, a quieter time can be enjoyed in leafy Rylstone Gardens or at the unique Shanklin Chine - a stunning gorge with rare plants and a cascading waterfall. Hop aboard the cliff lift to get to the enchanting Old Village with its lovely stone cottages
