Isle of Wight – From Dinosaur fossils to Roman invasions…

The Isle of Wight is a county off the southern coast of England (the largest island of England) and most use either the ferry or hovercraft to get there (taking a car on the ferry is expensive).

The island has a long history and is one of the most important locations of dinosaur fossils in Europe.

Romans, Vikings, Saxons and Normans have played a part in the county’s history and the island was once a kingdom in its own right, before becoming part of England. The Isle of Wight was once part of Hampshire, before becoming an independent administrative county in 1890.

Queen Victoria built a summer residence on the Isle of Wight (Osborne House at East Cowes) and it was also home to the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson.

The island relies mainly on tourism, although it does produce some ‘specialist’ crops like tomatoes, salad crops, cucumbers and garlic.

Reasons to visit Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is a popular tourist resort and has many beaches and amusements that are suitable for families. Some of the main places of interest include Alum Bay, Appuldurcombe House, the Amazon World Zoo (specializing in exotic animals from South America), Blackgang Chine (amusement Park), Brading Roman Villa, Carisbrooke Castle, Dinosaur Isle (dinosaur museum), Fort Victoria, Godshill Model Village, Isle of Wight Steam Railway, Isle of Wight Zoo, The Needles and the Botanic Gardens in Ventnor.
