Isle of Wight 'ideal for tree-climbing'

Fans of tree-climbing might wish to book an Isle of Wight holiday after the destination was flagged up as a great place to learn the sport.

According to Antonella Lazzeri of the Sun, tree-climbing is a very popular activity in the US.

However, she said it has not caught on to the same extent on this side of the Atlantic, despite the fact that the UK has lots of forests.

Nevertheless, Ms Lazzeri noted that there are certain areas in which a person can find out all about tree-climbing.

"The Isle of Wight is one of the few places in Britain where you can learn the ropes," she commented.

She added that the Isle of Wight is a very good place for families to visit and singled out its child-friendly pubs for particular praise, partly because of their excellent food.

This comes shortly after Oliver Bennett of the Independent flagged up the Isle of Wight as one of the few places in Britain where a person can find genuine peace and quiet.
