Isle of Wight Steam Railway trip recommended

People may be tempted to book an Isle of Wight holiday in order to go on a trip recommended by a national newspaper.

According to the Independent, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is one of the best places to visit over the Christmas and New Year festive period and is running a variety of special events for locals and those visiting the island for a short break.

The railway is expected to be one of the few tourist attractions open on the Isle of Wight for the bank holidays in the new year, with the Hangover Specials - a ten-mile trip around the island - being run on January 1st and 2nd 2011.

"Settle back and enjoy a peaceful steam train ride through the island's winter countryside," urged the organisers.

Throughout the course of 2011, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway will be hosting various events to commemorate its 40th anniversary those on breaks on the island can attend, with a photographic display to be unveiled in February.
