October events on the Isle of Wight include tons of festival fun, Halloween fright nights and half term activities for kids. An October holiday on the island marks the transition into winter so spend your time jumping in piles of leaves and taking long winter walks on the beach.
Take a look at our Isle of Wight cottages available in October.
