How would you spend your perfect day out? Maybe you want family fun and adventure for the kids?

If this is the case, then maybe its time you looked at some of the amazing Isle of Wight attractions which include detailed history and heritage, extending right back to the time of the Dinosaurs!

New for 2015!

There are plenty of new things to check out on the Isle of Wight this year:

  • Robin Hill Adventure Park are opening a brand new "Canopy Walk" - a wooden skywalk that will take visitors high up amongst the tree tops.
  • The Needles Landmark Attraction are launching the "Lost World" 4D Cinema Experience - which will immerse you in a prehistoric past
  • Osborne have opened the doors on the newly restored Durbar Room, Queen Victoria's grand function room, which is now laid out as it would have appeared during her reign 
  • Blackgang Chine have revamped their classic "Cowboy Town" adding a Grand National Bank and other buildings, whilst "Restricted Area 5" will be getting a new family of dinos.
  • Tom's Dairy, due to open early-summer 2015, will be a new family-friendly attraction in West Wight featuring a top quality restaurant, kid's play barn, "moo-seum" and lots more

Sometimes you might just want to get away from it all with a relaxing stroll along one of the many Isle of Wight beaches or through one of our magnificent gardens.

You may also want to visit one of our many amazing restaurants which only use local produce from the island.

The Isle of Wight is a popular place for a holiday, and plays host to some of the most famous and popular attractions in the UK, including the UK's oldest theme park at Blackgang Chine!

We also have a range of great animal attractions, like Seaview Wildlife Encounter where you can get up close and personal with penguins, meerkats and many others.

We also have traditional seaside amusements and entertainment like the adventure park at Shanklin Seafront.

Many of the Isle of Wight attractions are open all year round meaning there are lots of things to do in all seasons.

Take a walk through the Ventnor Botanic Gardens whatever the weather, or enjoy a stop off at The Garlic Farm to try some of their fantastic products.

There are so many different places to go, and so much variety that we couldn’t possibly list them all on one page!

That’s why we’ve broken it all down into easy to navigate sections, and also given you a handy search tool on the left hand side of the page so you can search through the things that you like to do and see.
