The Isle of Wight lies just off the south coast of England and is easily accessed by a short ferry ride. Our popular centre, Little Canada, is close to the water and is a perfect place for watersports as well as benefiting from lots of land-based activities.
Accommodation is in en suite lodges in the woods.
For students wishing to explore the area, the historic city of Portsmouth is just across the water and there’s plenty for students to explore on the Isle of Wight itself, including Carisbrooke Castle, where King Charles I was imprisoned, and Osborne House, the holiday home of Queen Victoria. The Isle of Wight is also famous for its dinosaur fossils and is often referred to as Dinosaur Island.
