Isle of Wight's Autumn Walking Weekend 'was a success'

The recent Autumn Walking Weekend held on the Isle of Wight has helped to build on the success of the annual walking festival that takes place on the island each summer.

It took place from October 22nd to 25th and saw many keen hikers pack their gear up and head out on their Isle of Wight holidays.

George Brown, Isle of Wight Council cabinet member for the economy, tourism, leisure and planning, stated that autumn can be the perfect time to sample all the island has to offer.

He explained that the event is also a good opportunity for the council to extend the island's tourism season and encourage more people to take Isle of Wight holidays.

"Autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the island's scenery and with this in mind, the council-run walking weekend is the perfect package to appeal to visitors," added the councillor.

Next year's Isle of Wight Walking Festival is to take place from May 7th to 22nd 2011.
