Every year the Isle of Wight welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world who come to explore its fascinating places, people and history. Discover the island’s distant and medieval past, and the ongoing restoration and preservation of its many precious artefacts. An abundance of wildlife awaits, from the big cats of Wildheart Animal Sanctuary to llamas and alpacas, some famous donkeys at Carisbrooke Castle and even pigs and piglets at beautiful Quarr Abbey. After ‘Hovering’ from Ryde to Portsmouth, you could take a trip on the island’s famed Steam Railway, or a peaceful stroll through Ventnor’s exotic Botanic Garden. The island’s only thatched church awaits you at Freshwater and likewise the unique church of the Lily Cross at picturesque Godshill.
The island’s treasures, both ancient and modern, are yours to discover on this, the ‘enchanted isle’.
