It’s half term and the grandchildren have been to stay. There are many Visitor Attractions on the Isle of Wight and we decided to visit Carisbrooke Castle , part of English heritage where we enjoyed seeing the donkeys. We followed the donkey trail and were awarded a prize. We learned how the donkeys worked the water wheel and found out how deep the well was.
The following day, as we had bought English Heritage membership tickets, my daughter and I decided to take my grandchildren to Osborne House, the country home of Queen Victoria and another Visitor Attraction on the Isle of Wight.
The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day and the we enjoyed a walk in the grounds. We will go back and visit the house another day for no extra harge – one of the benefits of being English Heritage members .
The Isle of Wight really is a great place to take your holiday and there are so many `Visitor attractions that there is no shortage of things to do here. The grandchildren’s time was all too short here but they will return and there will be plenty more for them to do.
