The Isle of Wight is a great place to entertain children during the school holidays and Red Funnel is welcoming families to the Island this Easter with an exclusive 25% off* admission to a wealth of fantastic attractions when booked with ferry travel.

Discounted Easter attractions:

Dinosaur Isle
The Isle of Wight is known as Dinosaur Island because of the huge number of fossils found around the Island, and The Dinosaur Isle houses the Island’s geology and fossil collection in an interactive and informative £2.7 million centre built in the shape of a giant Pterodactyl, perfect for engaging and educating budding palaeontologists.

Osborne House
The seaside residence of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Osborne House hosts various themed tours throughout the year around the royal apartments and grounds of the estate. Children will particularly love the miniature furniture in the Swiss Cottage, designed for princes and princesses in days gone by. Special activity sheets are available to help children get the most from their visit and there is a play area, restaurant, café and tea rooms.

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway
Take a ride on the vintage steam locomotives through the rolling Island countryside, with traditionally dressed staff and beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages.  

The offer is also valid on many other attractions across the Island, including Seaview Wildlife Encounter, where children can enjoy a hands-on day with penguins, parrots and wallabies; Butterfly & Fountain World, home to hundreds of species of butterfly and Carisbrooke Castle, a former royal fort and later prison to King Charles I.
