about the isle of wight:
The Isle of Wight has traditionally been a popular holiday destination for Brits, who since Victorian times have flocked to the island to take advantage of its warmer weather, stunning scenery and peaceful pace of life. This 2 day tour of Isle of Wight from London takes you to some of the many pretty towns and villages, local shops, restaurants and tea rooms.
The Needles are perhaps the most recognizable landmark on the Isle of Wight and are characterized by three distinctive stacks of chalk that rise out of the sea, as well as the Needles Lighthouse. Visitors love exploring the two gun batteries, experimental rocket testing station and the four coastguard cottages owned by the National Trust.
Osborne House was built between 1945 and 1851 for Queen Victoria as a summer home. Queen Victoria chose the spot for its distinct natural beauty and warmer climate, and the home was designed by Prince Albert in the style of an Italian Renaissance palazzo. Visitors today can explore the state rooms and private rooms and grand gardens and landscapes.
