We're off to the Isle of Wight next week and every day is forecast to be showers or rain. Can anyone recommend any places to visit if the weather is back?!

How old are your children (if you have them)? Difficult to suggest without knowing but here's some ideas....

Osborne house - seaside home of queen victoria, good day out, there is a cute little cottage she built for her children in the grounds too.

Butterfly world - indoor greenhouse with butterfly's, actually the butterfly's fly more when it's sunny but it's indoors.

Dinosaur isle museum

Quay arts centre Newport - gallery exhibition place and cafe

St Catherine's light house

Amazon world zoo

Dimbola lodge - photography etc, home of early photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. Dressing up in Victorian clothes room, shop, tea room

Rosemary vineyard - indoor bit showing you how they make the wine, tasting included. Recon children would like to see how everything's made too.

Yarmouth is a good little town for a mooch round on a wet day. Quaint streets and shops.

If the weather brightens up best beaches are steephill cove and Compton bay, if you like to go somewhere less touristy.
