Air Tours Escape the hustle and bustle of London for the day! In just over an hour, head over the stunning English countryside, see the beautiful coasts of Sussex and the Isle of Wight, and land in Isle of Wight by private plane!

Your pilot is key to this adventure.

It is sometimes difficult to quickly find somewhere that would meet the visitors tastes and when there are dozens of attractions in the yearly Isle of Wight Summer pocket guide, these may create too much choice! It is in no way a complete guide, because a place is not mentioned it does not mean that it is not recommended, it may be that we simply haven't got round to seeing it yet, or we have, and it has not impressed us enough to be featured here.

The Monkey Haven has been created to provide a safe, happy environment for primates and birds of prey who find themselves without a home. Reasonably priced attraction, Tearoom, children splay area, gift shop and the Wise Owl Learning Center for groups and schools.

A large selection of Tropical Birds and animals/insects and some reptiles within this Amazon Rainforest attraction with a difference. Good falconry displays are held daily and there is a Jurassic themed adventure park outside for the more energetic of us.

New for 2004 was an indoor large bat enclosure dimly lit with Pharaohs and tombs as the setting. Black gang Chine was one of the first holiday attractions of Great Britain and has had to change over the years and coupled with its natural beauty this makes it a unique fantasy park.

From Weather Wizards to Nursery Rhyme Characters to the {slightly} scary Rumpus Mansion and Cowboy Town where you can lock up your kids in the Sheriffs jail, there is lots to see and do. A pleasant walk that is usually different from one year to the next because of the effects of Landslip, also popular with the larger children is the water slide.

The famous Needles area has a few small attractions and exhibitions and gifts for young and old. It is FREE to enter the park once you have paid to park your car, nice chairlift down to Alum Bay sands where the many colored sands can be seen here, or there are lots of steps instead for the weary of heights.

This Garlic Farm and shop is FREE to enter with a new adjacent licensed Café' as well. Great views of Carisbrooke and the surrounding countryside, Princess Beatrice Garden is a new addition to enjoy within the Castle walls.

Pleasant 17th Century working watermill with rural museum and gardens. 18 holes putting green adjacent to a Carp pond with punts available for hire.

Keep an eye out for: Doves, Peacocks, Dormice, Bats, Red Squirrels, Ducks, Chickens, Blue and Rainbow Trout and Eels. Waterfalls and unique plants survive this micro-climate as well as a small section of P.L.U.T.O.

Not really suitable for the disabled from the top anyway although limited access is allowed from the lower entrance. The Heritage Center has information, displays, and a running video explaining the laying of the P.L.U.T.O.

Handy for a quick amusement amongst many good gift shops and tea gardens this village has to offer, and the entrance fee is quite reasonable. Recently re-opened to the public with guided tours of this 1840s Lighthouse on the Islands most southerly point.

Interesting large house and grounds of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Excellent tours around the house, the Victorian walled garden and The Swiss play cottage and Prince Albert's Barracks can be seen as well.

This is the sister park to Black gang Chine and is set in 88 acres of downland and woods. Probably appeals to slightly older children than Black gang Chine because of its vastness and larger rides.

Tree Top Trail and The Squirrel Tower are also favorites for kids with a head for heights! Quarter mile Toboggan ride is also great for adults as well.

The Islands only surviving windmill owned and maintained by The National Trust. Limited parking nearby, small gift shop, opening times vary according to season.

This is an interesting place for a pleasant amble amongst sub-tropical and exotic plants and trees from around the world. This location has its own mini climate where summers can be really hot and winters are quite mild.

This is a great treat and experience for the kids and adults, there is a gift shop, £1.2 million Train Story Discovery Center and restaurant/café' situated on this leading Heritage Railway. This all weather attraction is great for the family with different shows every day of the week.

The 40-min display is quite entertaining with music from the past and present, the excellent lighting and perfect timing is quite fascinating, a bit like a firework display choreographed to music without the smells and bangs. Owned by The National Trust this Battery was first completed in 1863 and has had many additions constructed throughout the years and two World Wars.

A café' and toilets are situated here with fantastic views and plenty of information is available. Buses run from Alum Bay Pleasure Park below up to here at regular intervals, or it is a nice walk up.

Shipwreck and Maritime Museum at Breton Barns Craft Village. The owner has been diving and finding chartered shipwrecks for many years, over 100 of them in fact.

There are lots of information and treasures to see with press cuttings, maps, old photographs and a video to watch. It is possible to watch glassblowing, wood carving with lathe work and pottery creation.

The Dairyman's Daughter pub is here with lots of indoor and outdoor seating, and food is served all day or enjoy The Malting Tearoom also nearby. There is also a 12th century church with carp pond which is accessed by walking through the craft village and there is also The White Lion pub just down the lane which also serves food.

Cortisone Manor House gardens come recommended if you have a nice day suitable for a bit of a walk around the gardens of an old 16th Century Manor House which is run by The National Trust. Mostly flat but there are areas up steep grassed banks, nice views, café', toilets, and a very small gift shop.

This Free attraction is quite enjoyable on a nice day and there is ample parking with a small gift shop and café'. All photographs on this site may not be reproduced, copied or used for other means without our prior permission.

I live in Portsmouth so the Isle of Wight is just a 10-minute journey on the hovercraft, or about an hour on the ferry. I’ve been over quite a few times now, and one of my favorite things to do is to hit up the Isle of Wight restaurants.

It’s a traditional Isle of Wight pub, but serves excellent, above standard food with a seafood theme. They proudly serve locally sourced seafood and island reared meats.

I went for the Modules Mariners for a starter and then the cold seafood platter for a main. It was a breezy day when we visited, so we sat in, although there was a large table of friends outside enjoying the view out to sea.

Ben found this one on Google, and I’ll admit, I wasn’t totally enthralled when we arrived, or even when they served my minute prawns for an expensive starter. But, Kings Well has made the list of the best restaurants on the Isle of Wight, thanks to the main dish of medallions of pork tenderloin.

Succulent, tasty pork, with incredible mushroom and tarragon sauce. If you like your pubs traditional, and your food hearty, then this is the Isle of Wight restaurant for you.

The Duck is one of the fancier Isle of Wight restaurants, one of the highest rated on the island. Check out the little shop there, the Emporium, to buy some flavorings and foods they serve in the restaurant.

Some Isle of Wight Restaurants on here have earned their place for their surroundings, others for their decor, and some, like this one, for their exceptional food that speaks for itself. As well as the restaurant here, serving up all kinds of garlicky treats, they also have a full events schedule.

Smoking Lobster on Vent nor’s seafront is the number one restaurant on Trip Advisor. It’s a seafood, grill, cocktail & wine bar, with sea views in what I think is the coolest part of the island.

With panoramic views of the Silent The Little Glister serves a seasonal menu with a strong emphasis on seafood. The Little Glister is a family-run restaurant with panoramic sea views of the Silent, in Guard, just five minutes west of Comes.

There are waffles, all kinds of eggs Benedict and some extra sounding Greek yogurt too. A really nice and relaxing restaurant on the Isle of Wight, with guaranteed great food.

This is à la carte country pub uses local produce to create their home cooked pies, freshly baked bread and Sunday roasts in an idyllic location on the Isle of Wight. “The Taverns is a real country pub that is popular with locals and tourists alike.

We buy our produce daily depending on what is available at the market, from farms and through what has been caught, foraged, shot or hunted. The majority of our meats come from Island farmers, the fish come from local waters, and we use island vegetables when they are in season from Living Larder and Farmer Jacks.

This means they’re experts in what they do, do, and you can enjoy first class, fresh seafood right on the beach from the comfort of a pub bench. NEW SITE: I recently launched a brand-new website dedicated entirely to days out in England.
