Travel back to prehistoric times on Isle of Wight

Ever since the release of Jurassic Park in 1993, a whole generation have been enamoured with dinosaurs. But if you can't wait for Jurassic Park 4 in 2015, why not head to the Isle of Wight for your prehistoric fix?

Take a trip to the Rocklands Manor and you'll be able to walk in the footprints of the dinosaurs who resided on the island 130 million years ago. 

It's one thing to see computer-generated recreations on television, but here you can actually measure yourself against an actual dinosaur skeleton to get a true sense of how big some of these creatures actually were.

There will also be the chance to go on fossil tours and meet renowned dinosaur expert and paleontologist Martin Simpson, as well as the much-loved 'Fossil Man'.

Other activities available at the establishment, which is situated on Isle of Wight's Dinosaur Coast, include speed boat rides along the Jurassic coastline and a trip to the Dinosaur Isle Museum, which has the full low-down on the dinosaurs that once called this part of the world home.

Not to be missed by dinosaur lovers or those with an interest in the past. A weekend away starts from ADNFCR-3083-ID-801650422-ADNFCR
