Of all the UK’s off-mainland destinations, the Isle of Wight is one of the most popular for Brits. That’s partly due to sheer convenience: the quickest ferry will get you there in 30 minutes (from Lymington) and the longest in an hour (from Southampton), or you can go from Portsmouth in 45 minutes. But there’s also a wealth of things to do on offer, from walking along glorious beaches to petting alpacas to dining at numerous restaurants serving up the freshest seafood, and absorbing whole lot of history along the way (not to mention spending the night at some seriously unique hotels). Even if you’re based further afield, it’s well worth making a beeline for, so check out our selection of the best things to do on the Isle of Wight and start exploring this charming little island.
