The subtropical Isle

The Isle of Wight is renowned for its temperate climate, with the warm sea around creating warm and humid Autumns. No wonder the exotic palms, bananas and echiums thrive from all corners of the world.

Visit the Isle of Wight Gardens and marvel at them still in full bloom.

Mottistone Manor garden owned by the National Trust remains open until 31st October , but not on Fridays and Saturday days.
