Festival of the Sea 2015

Wight Locations, Appley Beach, Ryde

Since it began in 2013, the Festival of the Sea has welcomed thousands of visitors to the Island.


We prefer Cottages to Campsites!

There's a glut of Isle of Wight Festival activity going on at the moment - the Blur announcement was met with great excitement here at Wight Locations and we've already started compiling lists of *must-see* acts topped by Fleetwood & Pharrell!


Isle of Wight Walking Festival

Wight Locations, Walking Festival, Beach

The isle of Wight Walking Festival will be celebrating its 17th year this May when hundreds of walkers and ramblers descend on the island for this unique event running from the 2nd to 17th May.

This year's Walking Festival boasts a whopping 243 walks that can be taken over the two week period. The term 'something for everyone' can often be over-used, but there was never a truer word in this regard. Here are our top picks:

Isle of Arts Festival

The Island boasts a wonderful Arts community with regular Open Studios and Literary Festivals held throughout the year. The jewel in the crown of this creative hub is undoubtedly the Isle of Arts Festival which this year takes place 1 - 4 May in Ventor.


Pearl Izumi Race comes to the Isle of Wight

Pearl Izumi Tour Series

One of the biggest events on the British competitive cycling circuit is coming to Ryde on Thursday May 14th, as for the first time ever the Pearl Izumi Tour Series will be taking place on the Isle of Wight!

Ryde will play host one of the stages of the race, which is one of the UK’s leading televised cycle races, bringing action and excitement to the seaside town.

The Old Fort – Half Term Events

Wight Locations, The old Fort, Half Term

One of our favourite seafront pubs (and closest to office), The Old Fort in Seaview will be laying on some special events over the next week. Throughout half term, Kids eat free (12 and under) with purchase of adult meal.

On St Valentine’s Day, you can bring the kids along in the early evening for some chocolate treats and colouring activities. From 19.30, it’s all about the grown-ups, with 3 course menu on offer for £20 per person.


Isle of Wight Festival

Wight Locations, Festival, banner

The Isle of Wight Festival returns to Seaclose Park in Newport again on the 11th June for what’s shaping up to become possibly their most popular line up yet.

The early line up announcement back in December included some huge names, such as the legendary Fleetwood Mac who will be playing only one Festival this year, and we’re delighted that they’ve chosen the Isle of Wight Festival


Robin Hill Illumination – Electric Woods

Wight Locations, Electric Woods, Robin Hill

Following the incredibly popular Festival of Lights event held at Robin Hill last October, the Park will return in February with a new stunning Oriental themed Light and sound spectacular!

The event will coincide with the Chinese New Year and also the February Half term period, from Saturday 14th February to Sunday 22nd.


Signal Point Arrival Hampers

Signal Point Cottage enjoys a prime position on the Island, as it’s located in the lush surroundings of Ventnor Botanic Garden. The Garden now supports a vegetable and herb plot, and its produce often dictates what is served at the superb in-house restaurant, Edulis.

Not content with serving produce grown in the Garden at the restaurant and the Plantation Room Café, Ventnor Botanic can now supply Arrival Hampers to guests staying at Signal Point.


Yarmouth Easter Duck race

Wight Locations, Duck Race, Yarmouth

The annual Easter rubber ducky race has become something of a tradition in Yarmouth, with bigger crowds and more entries each year.

Last year over 1250 ducks were sold for the race and over £1800 was raised for good causes in Yarmouth. The event in 2014 attracted hundreds of spectators from across the Island, who all came out to cheer on their favourite duck.

This year’s race takes place on Saturday 4th April, and the organisers will be hoping for a repeat of the great weather we had last year.
