England’s largest island, the Isle of Wight, sits just a short sea crossing over the Solent from the southern mainland coast of the United Kingdom. It has been enjoyed as a holiday and short break destination since the 18th Century and became one of Europe’s most fashionable resort areas after Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert chose the Isle of Wight as their family’s home in the 1800s at Osborne House.
