Welcome to the Isle of Wight

School's out for summer and there is plenty on the Isle of Wight to entertain children of all ages. If it's traditional entertainment you are after, then head to the beach where you'll find Punch & Judy shows and sandcastle competitions, or just relax in a deck chair and watch the yachts go sailing by.
