Isle of Wight Top 5

With Bestival next week, UKMums.TV checked out what else the Isle of Wight has to offer the family, and we were pleasantly surprised to discover the variety of family attractions available a short ferry journey across the Solent. Check out our top five Isle of Wight attractions here:

Osborne House
Take a tour of this palatial manor, Queen Victoria and Albert’s holiday retreat on the island, and its stunning manicured grounds before a leisurely stroll to the private beach. Kids will adore Swiss Cottage, the royal children’s giant playhouse, which offers interactive fun for little ones.

Shanklin Seafront
For a traditional seaside fare, check out Shanklin Seafront. You’ll find crazy golf and among fun children’s games and amusements along the promenade, plus plenty of restaurants with essential seaside fish and chips and ice-creams to enjoy as you watch the waves. Delicious!

Robin Hill Country Park
This unique amusement park offers a long swooping toboggan, pirate ship and trains for little ones among its list of amusements, plus falconry shows. All are set against the stunning backdrop of glorious countryside. Prepare for lots of steep inclines and descents!

Blackgang Chine
Unleash your adventurous side at Blackgang Chine, which is believed to be the oldest amusement park in the UK, with pirates, moving life-sized dinosaurs and fairy-tale themed attractions. Your children’s imaginations will run wild!

The Needles
Take in spectacular views of multi-coloured sands and cliffs in Alum Bay, including sights of the famous Needles Rocks and lighthouse. The Needles also offer traditional rides and demonstrations of sweet making and glass production.
