Easter sunshine increases bookings of Isle of Wight holidays

Many people headed out on Isle of Wight holidays over the Easter weekend in order to make the most of the excellent weather enjoyed by most of the UK.

According to a report by the Daily Mail, the Seaview Hotel is one of the destinations that has proved to be a popular choice for those getting away for a short break on the island during their time off work.

Bookings were up at the venue, which is located by the beach in Ryde, as people from the mainland decided to take a last-minute Isle of Wight holiday and jump on the ferry.

Camping and caravanning holidays on the Isle of Wight may also have been popular, with Jonathan Knight, founder and author of Cool Camping guides, telling the newspaper it is "fantastic" people are happy to holiday in the UK.

"As soon as the sun starts shining, Brits get their tents out and start looking for the best places to go camping," he said.
