The Isle of Wight - how to travel
This large little island is situated just off the south coast of England and is less than two hours from London via a choice of three Isle of wight ferries; they instil the holiday feeling as you are crossing from the "mainland".. The perfect destination any time of the year!
There is simply lots to see and do for you and your family...take in the world famous Needles ...a walk around Ventnor Botanic Gardens... a ride on a steam train or simply relax on one of the Wight's beautiful beaches.
For a family its all here and has everything whatever the weather.
Ventnor beach is the southernmost holiday beach on the Isle of Wight and is well-loved by all locals and visitors. Nestled in the bay beneath the town, the beach retains that Victorian elegance in its unique position, unlike any of the other beaches . You can hire deckchairs, sun loungers and wind breaks, and even get tea and cakes on the sands from the beach cafes.
The Cascade road follows a rocky waterfall to arrive on the seafront where a bandstand-like structure stands with 360 degree views from its lofty viewing platform.
Ventnor town and beach is but a short walk from your front door
The town centre of Ventnor is less than a 10 minute walk. There are restaurants, bars and cafes suitable for any type of occasion.
