Next stop on adventure weekend was a little roadtrip to the Isle of Wight. Just an hour on a ferry from Southampton, we docked in East Cowes and went on our merry way. It was quite hard narrowing down what we could see in a day, but here’s what we squeezed in.

A five minute drive from the ferry port and we arrived at Osborne House, the main reason I pestered my boyfriend into the day trip. Osborne House (part of English Heritage) is Queen Victoria’s holiday home, complete with stunning gardens and a private beach. I figured it deserved it’s own blog, so you can find that here.

After a few hours exploring at Osborne House, including a little seaside trip, we had worked up an appetite and craving fish and chips. We thought we might find some at Yarmouth but all we found was a long, windy pier. We definitely confused this with Great Yarmouth back on mainland England, it wasn’t the holiday town we expected.

Now we’re talking, fish and chips with a view. Albeit not proper chippy chips but the food was still delicious, if you ever find yourself strolling down the beach at Totland I definitely recommend popping into The Waterfront.

We had a couple of hours to kill before heading to our sunset spot, so we walked along the beach at Totland and we had it completely to ourselves.

After reading that one of the best spots to watch the sunset from was The Needles, we headed here for the evening.

The walk along the cliffs to The Needles is beautiful in the evening, and given it wasn’t ever so warm we barely came across any other people.
