Isle of Wight Walking Festival recommended

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival gets underway this weekend and it has been recommended in a national newspaper.

Hundreds of people are likely to be embarking on Isle of Wight holidays in the coming days to take part in the event, which starts tomorrow (May 5th).

According to a report by the Independent, it gives individuals the chance to follow in the footsteps of some of the biggest names from the world of music.

Tennyson Down is one of the main locations for the Isle of Wight Walking Festival and it overlooks the site where the 1970 pop festival was held, with acts performing at the bash including Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and Leonard Cohen.

It proved to be one of the last times guitarist Hendrix was seen in public, as he was found dead in his London hotel room just a few weeks later.

The news provider suggested the festival offers "dozens of organised walks focusing on the island's remarkable terrain, wildlife and man-made curiosities".ADNFCR-3083-ID-801357399-ADNFCR
