Learn about royals on Isle of Wight holiday

Families who want to learn more about the royal family can book Isle of Wight holidays in order to attend a special event being held on the island.

During the Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which is taking place on the island in May, there will be a walk called the Royal Connection.

Those taking part will set off from Whippingham Community Hall in order to travel along the Whippingham Heritage Trail from 14:00 BST on May 20th 2011.

It gives people the chance to get close to Osborne House, which was where Queen Victoria used to spend her Isle of Wight holidays when she was the monarch.

The buildings around the stately home are full of history and there will also be the opportunity to look around a church where two royal weddings have been held.

As well as the opulent house, Osborne House is famous for its superb gardens, where tourists could spend a whole day taking in the greenery.
