Isle of Wight 'a charming little slice of England'

Isle of Wight holidays could be set for a boost in popularity after a newspaper report stated the island offers a "charming little slice" of England.

Carisbrooke Castle was singled out by the Brentwood Gazette as one of the best locations to visit during a break on the Isle of Wight.

It was noted that kids will enjoy being able to walk along the battlements at the site, while from the highest point of the castle there are also "awesome views" to be enjoyed by visitors.

There is plenty to do on the Isle of Wight for thrill-seekers as well, as Robin Hill and Blackgang Chine can both be great places to go for families on a break on the island.

Blackgang Chine in particular was singled out for praise as being "simply great fun", with the highlight being the two-man-dinghy water slides that offer a "real adrenaline rush" for both children and adults.

Another place to go could be the Owl and Monkey Haven after the venue was able to pair up Martin and Lulu, two of its capuchin monkeys.

David Wickes, of the Owl and Monkey Haven, told the Isle of Wight County Press that their first meeting could not have gone better and they are already grooming each other.
