Offering a fun-packed family day out, this adventure pack will be a fun day out, with plenty to do throughout. Featuring huge rollercoasters, butterfly walks, sleeping beauty’s castle and a giant hedge maze there is something for everyone amongst the cliff top gardens. Perched near the edge of the vertical cliffs and rises to 400ft above the sea, for the most thrill-seeking children.

Carisbrooke Castle

At the 800-year-old Carisbrooke Castle there is plenty of space for children to run around the walls of the castle and even more for them to do in the grounds.

They can explore the engaging museum and visitor centre, climb the castle steps or even watch the resident donkeys pulling water from the deep Medieval wells before taking lunch on one of the many large lawns or in the excellent café.

Amazon World Zoo Park

An Isle of Wight holiday gives families a chance to visit the zoo on the Island. With some of the world’s most endangered species in the zoo, children are able to learn about rainforests and conservation first hand and experience some fantastic endangered animals such as sloths, tapirs and even anteaters. There is also a pond full of crocodiles and numerous species of tropical birds flying overhead, whilst there are always displays going on, such as the falconry display, with a variety of wonderful birds of prey.
