One of the big allures of the Isle of Wight is an escape from the hussle and bussle of busy life, with the promise of fresh air, calming surroundings and an overall boost to your wellbeing.

Our friends over at Ventnor Botanic Gardens have created a range of classes and activities around the theme of Wellbeing, to sooth and reinvigorate visitors looking to expand their holistic horizons.

Festivals of the Isle of Wight

Festival, Wight Locations

In recent years, the Isle of Wight has become synonymous with the word ‘Festival’, and this is usually in relation to the Famous music festival, held once a year in the centre of the Island. However, we’re not just about Music and Wellies!
In addition to the plethora of Music Festivals, we also have some amazing activity and food based festivals taking place throughout the year and we’ve listed some of the main ones below:

What's happening in May on the Isle of Wight

Walk the Wight, Wight Locations

As we move ever closer to the Summer months, the signs of longer days and warmer weather are everywhere on the island. From people on the beaches to a coastline filled with White sails and swimmers in the sea, in May the island really comes alive.

There are a number of events taking place on the island in May which embrace our passion for outdoor activities and make full use of our beautiful island:

Half Term Adventurers Club with Tackt-Isle

May Half Term is just around the corner and if you haven’t yet filled your schedule with planned activities to entertain the family, the friendly team of adventure enablers down on St Helens Duver would love to help.

The team at Tackt-Isle Adventures are on the hunt for a team of intrepid explorers to join their popular Adventurers club.

The 5-day adventure begins on Monday 30 May and will run daily from 10am to 2pm. During the week, the Adventurers will be cared for by fully qualified instructors and can expect to take part in a range of activities including:

Half term activities, and they're free!

Wight Locations, Rock Pool, Seaview

The school holidays don’t have to cost a fortune, especially when the Isle of Wight has so much to offer completely free!
We’ve picked some suggestions for keeping the family busy during the upcoming May half term, which are open to all and don’t come with any annoying entrance fees.

Festival of the Sea 2017

We have a number of wonderful music festivals now established on the Island. And we also have a festival which celebrates the sea rather than singing. That's right, Festival of the Sea sails into 2017, now in its fourth year and having successfully navigated the perilous seas to safely come ashore as one of the Island's successful yearly events.

Bembridge Lifeboat Station

There's a really lovely walk around the coastal point in Bembridge. If you park at the Toll Gate Cafe, at low tide, on the outskirts of the village, and step onto the beach you can explore the dunes as you wander around the point onto the vast expanse of sand on Bembridge Beach. Follow the shoreline around and enjoy the immense views and peaceful surroundings as you head towards the Lifeboat. The Lifeboat Station was given a major overhaul a few years ago and it now sits centre stage, impressive in it's design, at the heart of the village.
