Autumn Walking Weekend 'to build on success of Isle of Wight Walking Festival'

Walkers have been encouraged to book Isle of Wight holidays for October in order to attend an event which is aiming to build on the success of the annual Isle of Wight Walking Festival.

Around 60 walks will be on offer for visitors to the island for the Autumn Walking Weekend (October 22nd to 25th 2010), based on themes from gardens and ghosts to medieval times and manor houses and churches.

Councillor George Brown, the Isle of Wight Council cabinet member for the economy, tourism, leisure and planning, stated that it is hoped the event "gives visitors the chance to enjoy the seasonal changes that autumn brings to the island's landscape".

He added that the Isle of Wight Walking Festival has helped to put the island on the map for serious walkers since its inception in 1999.

Tourists who book Isle of Wight holidays in order to coincide with the Autumn Walking Weekend will find that there are walks available to suit people of all ages and skill levels during the event.
