Isle of Wight Walking Festival 'ideal for meeting new friends'

People who want to meet new friends on their break have been advised to book an Isle of Wight holiday.

According to the island's council, the Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which is taking place from May 7th to 22nd 2011, is "ideal" for those looking to increase their physical activity levels as well.

One of the events being held as part of the two-week festival which was highlighted by the Isle of Wight Council is one dedicated to Jimi Hendrix.

Hendrix Rocks! is described as a "leisurely, informative walk from the Jimi Hendrix Memorial Garden visiting the site of the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival and the festival exhibition at Dimbola Lodge".

The guitarist famously made one of his last live appearances on the island before dying in a London hotel room just a few weeks later.

Isle of Wight tourists can check out the walk on May 13th 2011 for the cost of a donation to Dimbola Lodge.
