Ventnor 'hippest hub' on Isle of Wight

Ventnor has been described as the "hippest hub" on the Isle of Wight, potentially encouraging people to book breaks in the popular seaside location.

According to a four-page spread published in the newest issue of Tatler magazine, The Royal Hotel in Ventnor and The George in Yarmouth are hotels well worth visiting during an Isle of Wight hotel, VentnorBlog reports.

One of the people to have given their views on the Isle of Wight for the magazine, Christa d'Souza, said it is "in many ways like Mustique", reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Tatler also claims "crabbing is the biggest activity on the island", when "everyone penguins about in their bright yellow lifejackets".

As well as Ventnor, which is always popular among those who book Isle of Wight holidays for the summer due to its warm weather, tourists may choose to head to the nearby village of Bonchurch, which boasts the tiny Old Church of St. Boniface, which was built around 1,000 years ago.
