Isle of Wight is 'tranquil, genteel and green'

Isle of Wight holidays could be popular among those looking for a "tranquil" and "genteel" break in the UK.

That is how the island has been described by discoverferries.co.uk, which named it as one of the top locations to visit via boat.

It suggested those who book Isle of Wight holidays take some time to head to Osborne House, which is a former residence of Queen Victoria, who used to regularly vacation on the island.

"Spend a day on the cliffs by the famous Needles, the towering chalk sea-stacks considered one of the natural wonders of England, or explore the white sandy beaches of the island," the website advised.

For those looking for a bit more excitement from their Isle of Wight holidays, the major sailing regatta Cowes Week was named as an event worth attending.

It gets underway on August 6th and includes events such as the Artemis Challenge, which is famous for attracting a high percentage of celebrity sailors..
