Broadway Park Hotel
Stay amid beautiful gardens, close to all the attractions Sandown and the Isle of Wight have to offer at the beautiful Broadway Park Hotel in Sandown.
The hotel is in a popular area of Sandown, not far from the seafront and the town centre. Sandown has all the fun of the seaside with its beach and pier as well as a number of bars and restaurants, but without the usual overcrowding in summer and relatively mild weather in winter. One of the town’s main highlights is the popular Dinosaur Isle exhibition, which tracks the history of fossil discovery on the Isle of Wight.
From Sandown the rest of the island is easily accessible by both car and public transport. Ryde is a short train ride away and has all the attractions you would expect from a traditional British seaside resort, with a huge number of amusements and even a funfair. For great landscapes and sea views head to the Needles and the Tennyson coast on the island’s west coast.
In the hotel enjoy open gardens, great for relaxing and enjoying the great Isle of Wight sunshine. If it gets a little too hot, take a dip in the outdoor pool, or get inside and enjoy a game of snooker or fantastic entertainment in the evenings.
Half Day: Ryde
The resort of Ryde grew as a major Victorian seaside resort in the 19th century and has retained much of its traditional charm. With its attractive esplanade and bustling marina offering fantastic views across the Solent it’s easy to see why so many famous names have called this town home and why it’s said to be the inspiration for the Beatles song ‘Ticket to Ride’.
Full Day: Isle of Wight Steam Railway
enjoying a unique view of some of the island's unspoilt countryside and quaint villages as we take a journey on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Settle back in the beautifully restored carriages and watch the scenery roll by! We continue on to visit the picture-postcard village of Godshill, full of pretty thatched cottages, which are clustered around the quaint church.
