Easter fun on the Isle of Wight 13 Apr 2022
The Isle of Wight is a great place to live thanks to the amazing scenery, friendly community and, of course, all the fun events that take place throughout the year! Here at Hose Rhodes Dickson, we thought we would give you a guide to some of our top events taking place over the Easter break…
Osborne Adventure Quest – Certainly the most lovely house on the Island (no, it’s not for sale!) Osborne in East Cowes was once the holiday home of Queen Victoria. Now managed by English Heritage, it has been restored to its former glory and is a true sight to behold. This Easter, explore the grounds for hidden eggs, adventures and more. Take a tour of the house to be transported back in time.
If getting amongst spring animals is more your thing, make sure to head to Tapnell Farm Park in the West Wight. Meet newborn calves, kids, lambs, chicks, harvest mice and even stick insects! And of course, their new little joey!
One for the grown ups, the Real Ale Festival at Isle of Wight Steam Railway in Havenstreet gets underway this month. Choose from a huge selection of real ales, with the opportunity to try local brews from Yates’, Goddards and Island Brewery, alongside ales from Yorkshire, Somerset and more.
Not quite Easter but in early May, the annual Isle of Wight Walking Festival kicks off. There are plenty of routes to suit all abilities, from endurance walks around the entire Island, to gentle strolls, you can take part in walks that include talks about the Island’s history, walks that take in nature and much more. Once you have stretched your legs, why not take part in this year’s Walk the Wight on Sunday 8th May. This annual iconic walk raises funds for the Mountbatten hospice, and you can complete all, half, flat version or even the last 4 miles, all for a good cause!
