The Isle of Wight Walking Festival will be hosting a variety of walks this autumn and takes place between 23 and 26 October 2015.

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


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.
