Local Events

Whitecliff Bay

Local events on the Isle of Wight

Not only does Whitecliff Bay host some terrific entertainment and activities on park but the local area is always bustling with brilliant local events.

As well as the fantastic local attractions, there’s also a lot of great events happening on the island this year to celebrate 175 years of family adventures! We’ve picked a selection of our favourite festivals, events and shows taking place on the Isle of Wight for 2019.

Fright Night at Isle of Wight Steam Railway

Lurk menacingly on the platform, then take our ‘ghost train’ through the Island’s deserted night time countryside, passing darkened woodland and desolate fields.
