Staying elsewhere on the Isle of Wight
With great transport links you can stay pretty much anywhere on the Isle of Wight for the Festival weekend, enabling you to take in some of the amazing surroundings in one of the UK's top holiday destinations. With the history of the Isle of Wight festival stretching back to 1968, and across 4 different sites, you can even retrace the steps of some of the original festival goers! Take a break over in West Wight and you will likely find yourself close to the site of the famous 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, which took place at Afton near Freshwater. Even further back down the Festival history trail is the site of the 1969 event which took place at Wootton, which is just a few miles away from the current site, and the very first festival in 1968, which took place in Godshill.
For the ultimate in early festival nostalgia book yourself in at The Old Boathouse in the Victorian Sailing village of Seaview - rock legend Jimi Hendrix is reputed to have stayed at The Old Boat House while on the Island before, and after, performing at the iconic 1970 Isle of Wight Festival!
