Tourists urged to visit Isle of Wight this Easter

Mon 15 Feb 2010

The Isle of Wight has been flagged up as an ideal destination for Easter holidaymakers.

A number of events aimed at family groups are set to take place during the Easter season, according to the Isle of Wight Council.

This includes Easter Art Week for Kids at Quay Arts in Newport Harbour, which includes a series of hands-on workshops.

Youngsters will also be able to expand their knowledge at Dinosaur Isle on Culver Parade in Sandown.

The museum is hosting a Dressing up as Dinosaurs Day on Friday April 2nd, at which youngsters will get to learn all about the prehistoric monsters.

In addition, families can decorate their own ceramic egg cups at Chessell Pottery, an attraction that boasts a very highly rated tea room.

The Isle of Wight Council said: "With lots of family-fun events and accommodation going cheap, why not hatch a plan and egg-scape to the Isle of Wight this Easter?"

Meanwhile, official figures cited by the Isle of Wight County Press have revealed that the number of visitors to the island went up last year.

Statistics showed that more than 2.5 million holidaymakers enjoyed a break in the Isle of Wight during 2009.
