1. FRESH AIR AND VITAMIN SEA.

Those visiting the Isle of Wight for the first time are often struck by its natural beauty. What the region lacks in land mass it certainly makes up for in countryside, woodland and coastline. There are spectacular views to be had across our picturesque island, many of which are best reached by foot. We have pulled together a few Royal Favourites HERE

2. CYCLE THE WIGHT.

The Isle of Wight is renowned for its cycling routes, and the Lonely Planet cites the Island as one of the top ten cycling destinations in the world! You can expect dramatic, unspoilt scenery, quiet roads (and some off-road routes) and breath-taking views round every corner... Wight Cycle Hire can deliver electric bikes to The Royal, making your cycling adventures effortless and fun. We also offer safe overnight storage for anyone bringing their own bike.

3. BRING YOUR FURRY FRIEND FOR A DOG-CATION!

Of course, half term is for the whole family and many of the Island’s pubs and restaurants are dog friendly so there’s no need to leave your furry friend at home. Many of the beaches revert to being completely dog friendly during the autumn months so you’ll have miles of seaside to explore and foodie places to visit. We have dog friendly rooms available for a small surcharge.

4. GOURMET ISLAND

This bountiful island is particularly well known for its home-grown tomatoes, garlic and asparagus, which are sold at Farmer’s Markets and supermarkets all over the country. Isle of Wight cheese has also become a much sought-after gourmet delicacy, appearing on the menus of many world-class restaurants. You can even find locally brewed beer, wine and vodka - in fact, it’s hard to think of a foodstuff that Island producers do not excel at! Embracing the Island’s prolific food scene with enthusiasm, we hope that dining at The Royal will also be a highlight of your stay with us.

5. HERITAGE ISLE

Osborne is the palatial former holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, located on the Isle of Wight. Relax in the open air as you wander rolling acres of the magnificent Osborne estate.
