As well as being its own county, the Isle of Wight is England’s largest island and a thriving community in its own right. Despite it’s separation from the UK’s mainland, there is still a large community of islanders and plenty of places of interest for tourists to peruse. Alongside its beaches, festivals, and community feel, the Isle of Wight also boasts a rich and intriguing history. Back in the 1400s it was its own independent kingdom, and, as recently as 1995, the island still had its own governor. And for those of you with a melodic ear, the island hosts its very own musical bonanzas in the shape of the Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival.
The island is even famed for hosting one of the very last performances by the late and great Jimi Hendrix in 1970, an event which drew a crowd of over 600,000. Staggeringly, that is more than three times the entire population of the island itself. More importantly it was once home to Queen Victoria as she loved to stay on the island in the summer period, so much that she had built the Osborne House between 1845-1851. Queen Victoria shared her manor estate with Prince Albert by whom it was designed by. Sadly, Queen Victoria died in her home on the Isle of Wight in 1901 and now the estate is open to the public.
