Following the government announcement of a four-week lockdown in England, we're pleased we can keep the outdoor spaces we care for in the Isle of Wight open where we can, including coast and countryside sites and car parks, as well as, gardens and parklands. You can still enjoy takeaway food and drink from our cafés and food outlets, in line with government guidance. We recommend you book in advance for visits to gardens and parks, especially at busy times like weekends. See what's open and ready for you to book this week below...
Something magical is happening in Mottistone Manor this Christmas. Creatures from the deep, dark woods have come to visit and are taking bubbled families on an adventure to discover the wonders of the natural world.
Signalling the arrival of the colder months, the appearance of winter migrants at Newtown is a spectacular sight. Wildfowl and waders fill the creeks and estuary making it the perfect place for a spot of winter birdwatching.
A walk across a magical frost covered landscape is the perfect way to warm through on a chill winter’s day. Wrap up warm, download one of our suggested trails, and discover the beautiful Isle of Wight countryside this winter.
