Check out Steam Railway on Isle of Wight holiday

A trip on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway has been recommended to tourists heading to the island later this month.

With the February school half-term break just a week away, parents are likely to be looking for ideas as to where to take little ones to keep them entertained during their time off.

The Isle of Wight Council has stated that the railway station at Havenstreet offers an "interesting stroll" for families, while the venue - which was voted the Best Heritage Project at the 2010 National Lottery Awards - is also putting on Diesel Service Week from February 21st 2011.

A trip to the Isle of Wight Steam Railway also gives people the chance to "see the restoration work being carried out in the carriage and wagon workshop", added the council.

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is holding a range of special events to mark its 40th anniversary this year, including Mothering Sunday rides on April 4th.
