Isle of Wight heritage on show this weekend

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays this weekend have the chance to learn all about the island's heritage during their time on the island.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, a variety of displays by the Ryde Social Heritage Group are being put on from today (September 7th).

The Union Street centre, beneath the Royal Victoria Arcade, only opened this year but has already become a popular destinations for those visiting the island to check out.

Ventnor Heritage Centre and the Isle of Wight Steam Railway at Havenstreet are among the other venues to be taking part in the weekend's activities, as well as Newport Roman Villa, which is open tomorrow from 10:30 to 16:30 BST.

It is a big weekend for the Isle of Wight, as tens of thousands of revellers are currently watching acts such as Stevie Wonder, The xx, New Order and Florence and the Machine at Bestival, which is taking place at Robin Hill Country Park.
