Christmas shopping on the Isle of Wight

Christmas shopping on the Isle of Wight

An essential part of the Christmas holiday, seasonal shopping is all too often a stressful and difficult experience. Shun the crowds on Oxford Street this year and instead make all of your purchases on the Isle of Wight during your holiday.

Start by visiting the classic Christmas village of Arreton, which likes to get dressed up for the festive period. The Corn Exchange offers a huge range of independent shops advertising great gift ideas that you're unlikely to find off the shelf of anywhere else.

Head there on a weekend and the children will be particularly pleased as Santa Claus will be there to greet them from 1:30pm until 4:30pm, with his grotto brimming with presents and gifts.

You can also expect a feeling of complete calm and isolation from this traffic-free village, a world away from the havoc and mayhem of the typical high street at winter.

For great gifts, local produce and an all-round feeling of festive fulfillment, head to Arreton Old Village in the heart of the Isle of Wight.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801659313-ADNFCR
