Campsites on the Isle of Wight
The largest of England’s islands, the Isle of Wight is a diamond-shaped county located in the English Channel, just two miles off the Portsmouth coast separated from the mainland by the waters of the Solent. Measuring 23 miles across, just over half of the island, mainly in the west, is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The island enjoys a rich history, including a brief status as an independent kingdom in the 15th century, and has also been home to Alfred Lord Tennyson and Queen Victoria. It boasts numerous holiday resorts which have been popular with people since the Victorian times.
