Things to do

Walking with Dinosaurs...

Wight Locations, Walking with Dinosaurs

Ever wanted to...

  • Walk with a Polacanthus
  • Run with a Valdosaurus or
  • Fly with a Caulkicephalus?

When you visit the island on holiday, you can tread in the footsteps of these prehistoric creatures in the very place they were discovered 130 million years ago.  And, at the same time, you can find out more about their relatives, the dinosaur characters from the movie…Parksosaurus (the star!), Ankylosaurus, Gorgosaurus, Troodon…

The dinosaur hotspots!

Things to do on the Isle of Wight in September

Around the beginning of August each year we start to hear the same words spoken every year at this time when it starts to rain “apparently, we’re going to get an Indian Summer…”, and invariably we usually do get a ‘late summer’ here on the Isle of Wight.
The warmer days and nights often stretch right through September and into October, and we always make the most of our enviable micro-climate on our little Isle.


Festival of light at Robin Hill

The popular ‘Electric Lights’ event is returning to Robin Hill Country Park again this Autumn. This year’s Festival of Light is inspired by the Diwali festival and is celebrating 70 years of India’s independence.

Extinction event at Blackgang Chine

The Dinosaurs are alive and kicking at Blackgang Chine this September. The park will be hosting an ‘Extinction’ event, where you’ll be able to meet the parks resident baby T-Rex, a flock of Dodo’s and various other previously extinct creatures.

It’s not just Dinosaurs, there’s even the odd mythical creature, such as Cedric the Dragon.

BBC Antiques Road Show at Osborne House

Who doesn’t love a bit of Antiques Road Show!!!?

Well if you’re one of the millions that do, and have ever wanted to pop along to see a show being filmed, there will be a great opportunity to do so in mid-September, here on the Isle of Wight.

Eklectica Music Festival

Of the many festivals that occur across the Island throughout the year, Eklectica is the newest music festival and the inaugural event will be taking place in early September at Robin Hill Country Park.

30 Days of June

One of the biggest events that occurs in June every year on the Isle of Wight, is the World Famous Isle of Wight Festival. But if you thought that was pretty much it for June, you’d be wrong.

The Isle of Wight is buzzing with activity in June, and if you’re planning on popping over for one of the events, perhaps you might be able to squeeze in a couple more things to do, whilst you’re here.
