Isle of Wight holidays popular among Easter tourists

Isle of Wight holidays are set to be popular this month with people from all over the UK flocking to the island to make the most of the two bank holiday weekends.

With Easter this week followed up by the royal wedding, people need to only take three days off work to be able to have a long holiday.

And ABTA - The Travel Association has picked out the Isle of Wight as one of the most popular destinations among tourists heading away for a break.

John McEwan, ABTA's chairman, described the Easter weekend as the "curtain-raiser" for the summer and much of the UK has been enjoying the sunshine this week.

"I am delighted to see that so many of our customers are taking advantage of the extra days off either heading off overseas or taking a break closer to home," he said.

Brading Station Visitor Centre could be a popular destination for those on Isle of Wight holidays, with the venue opening for the summer on April 22nd 2011.
