Indulge your mum on an Isle of Wight holiday

People have been urged to treat their mothers to an Isle of Wight holiday this April.

According to the Isle of Wight Council, the island could be the ideal place to take parents for a short break in the spring, covering Mothering Sunday on April 3rd 2011.

The council also encouraged tourists to head to the Isle of Wight for an Easter break.

It noted: "The island hosts a diverse cast list including dinosaurs, owls, lemurs, shire horses and lions as well as lots of traditional Easter activities."

The council said that these include bonnet parades, egg hunts and a whole range of festivities at Quay Arts, which is hosting an Easter Art Week.

It also encouraged those on Isle of Wight holidays to head to island art galleries such as the newly-opened one at Quarr Abbey.

The monastery also offers guided tours where visitors can learn all about what life is like for the monks on the Isle of Wight.
