Isle of Wight holiday recommended for school half-term

An Isle of Wight holiday has been recommended to families who are looking to get away next month in the schools half-term break.

According to visitsoutheastengland.com, a trip to the island could be great fun because of the open week being held at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway.

It pointed out that those who book Isle of Wight holidays for February 19th to 26th will be able to "learn all about the history of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, with a photographic display dating back to 1971".

A wide range of events are being held by the Isle of Wight Steam Railway during the course of the year in order to mark its 40th anniversary.

These include The Last Train - a guided walk on January 23rd 2011, starting at 10:15 GMT, taking in the journey from Newport to Wootton, before the final leg of the trip is completed on the steam locomotive to Havenstreet.
