Isle of Wight Walking Festival recommended

Keen ramblers are being encouraged to head to the Isle of Wight this spring to indulge in their hobby.

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which attracts about 12,000 visitors every year, gets underway on May 8th 2010 and runs until May 23rd.

Among the likely highlights will be the Isle of Wight speed-dating walk, which is being recommended to walkers who want to find a like-minded partner.

The Isle of Wight Council, the organiser of the event, said the speed-dating walk is great fun and has proved very successful in the past.

"So far, at least three couples have tied the knot as a result of meeting on the walk, while dozens more have formed lasting friendships," it commented.

The authority said this could be partly because spring is widely seen as a time of love and romance.

Alternatively, it speculated that the Isle of Wight's stunning scenery and warm sea air could also have played a part.

The Isle of Wight Council has already encouraged people to try out some of the other walks during the two-week event, including a gentle stroll around the gardens at Osborne House.
