Isle of Wight holiday can feature street tour

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays will be able to take a tour of one of the island's most famous areas during their stay.

As part of English Heritage's Open Days, visitors will be able to look around the houses that are located above the Winter Gardens in Ventnor.

Those who decide to take the free tour on September 11th or 12th 2010 will be able to hear all about Sir Edward Elgar and why he chose to holiday on the Isle of Wight for his honeymoon, as well as the Alan Bates film that was made in the street.

Isle of Wight holidaymakers will also be able to learn how many people were able to stay in the buildings during the Alexandra Gardens Open Day.

Those taking an Isle of Wight holiday this September will be able to attend Rock Shock Horror 2010, which is being held at the Ventnor Winter Gardens on the 16th, with attendees treated to renditions of hits such as Tommy and Mamma Mia.
