The Isle of Wight has been voted one of the top 1o Islands to visit in the UK following a national survey to find the nation’s favourite Island destination.
Popular review website, Trip Advisor, held their annual Travellers’ Choice Island Awards to ask members of the public to vote for their favourite Island, with the Isle of Wight coming out at number 9.
The results come after a number of Island Echo readers have questioned the future of tourism on the Island, stating that it is felt not enough is being done to bring tourists to the Island all year round.
