Isle of Wight Adventure Activities, Freshwater, they do things like kayaking and coastering.
Tackt-Isle Adventures in St Helens - all water sports.

There is also Wight Karting - my son loves go-karting.
Escape rooms in Newport - we all enjoy escape rooms and have really missed doing them this year.
Take the chair lift down to beach at the needles, and go on the boat trip. There are 2 boat trips, a slow gentle trip and a speed boat type fast one.
At Blackgang Chine there is the Islands only rollercoaster (a smallish one) and a great water slide, but most of it is better suited to the under 11's.
The dinosaur and fossil walks are very good, especially if you find some dinosaur bones.
You can do axe throwing, archery and mountain boarding (like snowboarding on grass), somewhere in Freshwater.
There are a few very good crazy golf places in Shanklin and Sandown.

Can you tell we love it there.
What fabulous ideas, thank you! I have started a new page in my book, Iím a bit daunted planning a holiday in just 11 days

I'm on holiday at the Isle of Wight at the moment we booked as our Thailand holiday was cancelled. I travelled here every year as a child and its been amazing reliving lots of the places I have find memories of visiting as a child.
We are staying at Shanklin, we walked to Sandown yesterday and ate at the Steamer Inn restaurant in the evening which was lovely, I'd advise to book as anybody walking in had to sit outdoors and it was very wet.
Today we climbed to the top of Tennysons down, the views are stunning and visited the needles.
Heading to Godshill tomorrow for one of the lovely cakes.
I'd forgotten how much I love this island! Hope your holiday will be as fantastic as mine is so far

Check out The Price is Wight website for special deals on eating out and things to do.

Try the Garlic Farm for breakfast, the Old World tea rooms in Godshill for a cream tea - they do a special chocolate one, and our favourite place to eat out is The White Horse at Whitwell.
