Bank holiday sunshine could lead Brits to Isle of Wight

A predicted spell of hot weather over the upcoming bank holiday weekend could persuade Britons to book last-minute holidays to the Isle of Wight.

The Met Office has stated that the weather is to remain warm and dry over the weekend, with areas in the south likely to see the best of the sunshine.

Isle of Wight holidays could be a perfect choice for British tourists looking for somewhere to travel to for the bank holiday weekend before returning to work on Tuesday (June 2nd 2010).

Jenny McGee, head of strategy and engagement for VisitEngland, said the sunshine could inspire people to get out and about, despite England being an all-weather destination.

She added: "We're delighted to hear the predictions for such great weather this weekend."

Notable attractions for those who choose to take Isle of Wight holidays could include theme parks such as Blackgang Chine, some of the most attractive beaches in the country and more than 500 miles of footpaths and bridleways.
