Embrace out of season. With school holidays coming around next month, an Isle of Wight break in June is the time to get away and make the most of the peace. Most people won’t be holidaying this month because of the upcoming summer peak season so you’ll really get chance to live like a local, enjoying all the best attractions while they're not so busy.
Plan a weekend away just the two of you and the dog or gather some friends together for a much-needed catch up. Stay in Bembridge and explore the Bembridge Ledge and Whitecliff Bay before stopping in at the local butcher’s, W.W. Woodford to pick up some meat for the barbecue. The sunshine will keep you in the mood for lots of outdoor adventures and maybe a jug of Pimms, too.
If you have kids who aren’t old enough to go to school, keep them entertained with the Festival of the Sea events at Blackgang Chine. Or visit one of the many National Trust or English Heritage locations across the island. You’ll find huge gardens, a private beach and plenty of space to play at Osborne House, plus you can learn all about the rich Victorian heritage and the Royals’ presence on the island throughout their lives.

The best place to visit at this time of year is the Needles at Alum Bay. Catch a good view of this natural wonder without having to dodge through crowds. You’ll be able to take everything at your own pace. Wander around the surrounding area, head up to the Needles Old Battery for a step back in time and a different view along this stretch of coastline.
