New things to see and do on the Isle of Wight
Many of the Islands popular attractions have been here for generations, and have been updated and extended over the years, whereas some have changed very little and have preserved their original charm.
Some of our favourite family attractions
In no particular order...just some of our favourites.
Amazon World Zoo Park in Arreton is the Islands largest exotic animal attraction, with a large array of creatures from all over the world (not just the Amazon)
This large indoor play facility is based in Newport and is the perfect place for the kids to let off steam on a rainy day. It caters for toddlers keen to explore their environment, right up to after-hours laser tournaments for the teens.
Dinosaur Isle, Sandown
Situation a stone’s throw from Sandown seafront, Dinosaur Isle is Britain's first purpose built dinosaur attraction. Built in 2001 with help from the Millennium grant commission, this modern building has been designed to be reminiscent of a flying Pterosaur.
Brading Roman Villa
Brading Roman Villa can be found at the very end of the quiet village of Brading, nestled underneath the Downs. It can count itself as one of the finest Roman settlement sites in the UK. The award winning visitor site and museum has received lottery funding and offers a unique insight into Roman life in Britain. An extensive collection of Roman archaeology is exhibited there as well as some of the best preserved mosaic floors in Northern Europe.
Year round fun on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway
Whatever the weather there is always lots of fun to be had on the Award Winning Isle of Wight Steam Railway.
Oasis is really like an oasis, an treasure trove of a shop out on it's own in St Helen's, selling great gift ideas and tasteful items to dress the home, as well as a selection of unique natural wood furniture, with lots of items originating from Bali and all around the world.
