Isle of Wight tourists to go on Christmas lights tours

Families heading on Isle of Wight holidays may wish to ensure they go on a tour of the island's Christmas lights during their festive vacation.

The events are being held until December 30th and people can set off from Ryde bus station for a two-hour trip from 18:30 GMT on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Tickets are available from £8 for adults and £4 for under-19s, while a family pass gaining admittance for two adults and two children can be purchased for £20, with under-fives given a free ride on the open-top bus.

Choreographed fairy lights, giant inflatable Santas and animatronic reindeers can all be spotted during the tour of the island's brightest Christmas displays, while there is also a stop at Arreton Old Village for mulled cider and shortbread.

Those who are spending the festive period on Isle of Wight holidays may wish to head to the Christmas Eve Family Fun Day which is being held in Sandown, with a Santa's Grotto among the attractions.
