Isle of Wight holiday recommended for half-term

Parents have been told that taking their children on an Isle of Wight holiday over the upcoming half-term school break can be a good activity.

Joanne O'Connor of the Telegraph suggested that the Autumn Walking Weekend, which runs from October 22nd to 25th on the island, could be a popular choice.

"Among the 60 scheduled walks are a number of family-friendly expeditions including a guided fossil-hunting walk along the beach at Yaverland," she said.

The journalist also recommended those who decide to take Isle of Wight holidays check out a scary night of fun at Parkhurst Forest, which will be hosting spooky events in the run-up to Halloween at the end of the month.

"Booking is essential," she added.

The Autumn Walking Weekend gives tourists on Isle of Wight holidays the chance to choose between around 60 different events, including Hendrix in the West, which is a guided tour of the spots on the island Jimi Hendrix visited back in 1970.
