Many Brits are discovering the joys of holidaying on home soil: reducing their carbon footprint while exploring many well-loved and undiscovered areas of England. This unique guide to the Isle of Wight & the New Forest is a valuable source of local information, to help visitors get the most out of the area in the time you have; be it a two-week holiday, short break or long weekend. Throughout the book, local people give their recommendations on where to find the best fish and chips, bike ride or secret path to a spectacular view, uncovering the Best of Britain. This guide includes practical information on a range of accommodation, the best places to eat, local festivals, events and activities as well as informing readers about the history, geology and culture of the area, with a 'local heroes' section of famous residents past and present. Informative maps are found throughout the book, including walking and climbing routes and children's activities in the area.
The book focuses on what makes this part of the south of England so special: the charm of the New Forest's many walks and cottages, the small market towns strewn inside the forest; the Isle of Wight's chalk cliffs, deserted beaches and picturesque seaside towns.
