May 'is perfect' for Isle of Wight holidays

Tourists already thinking about their vacations for next year have been told that May is perfect for Isle of Wight holidays.

According to the island's council, this is because the month has two bank holiday weekends and also plays host to one of the Isle of Wight's most enduringly popular events.

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival gets underway on May 7th 2011 and runs until the 22nd and the council noted that the event is perfect for those who are seasoned walkers or beginners, due to the range of trails available on the island.

"From firework party nights and Punch and Judy shows to medieval-costumed falconry displays, May is the perfect time to visit the island and relax over the long weekends," added the Isle of Wight Council.

Almost 25,000 travelled to the island for this year's Isle of Wight Walking Festival to enjoy the 300 walks crossing the 500 miles of maintained footpaths.
