Isle of Wight 'offers top quality holiday experience'

A member of the Isle of Wight Council has stated that visitors to the island can look forward to a "top quality holiday experience".

George Brown, cabinet member for the economy, tourism, leisure and planning, added that Isle of Wight holidays also offer tourists "extraordinary value".

He made the comments after the Isle of Wight placed highly in a poll of the most popular destinations in the UK.

Trip Advisor placed the island in 14th position for the whole of the UK and 8th for England, beating off competition from the likes of Padstow in Cornwall and the Yorkshire Dales.

"It is very encouraging to be singled out as one of the UK's best destinations by foreign tourists in this way," commented Mr Brown.

Isle of Wight holidays are likely to be popular for tourists from the mainland and further afield in the coming week, with the sailing spectacular Cowes Week set to get underway on Saturday (July 31st 2010) and run until August 7th.
