A small island off the south coast of England. Referred to by the Beatles as a place to holiday when you're 64, the Island is notorious for its surplus of OAP's as this garden Isle can be a relaxing place to live with a very slow pace of life.
However, life for anyone below the age of 65 can be very boring unless you are extremely rich or stupid. There are very little job prospects, the education system is terrible and the social exclusion rates are like those of a major mainland city. There is very little for kids to do, fashion takes 5 months plus to translate to the Island's people. The cost of living is quite high- for example, McDonalds raise the price of all the goods 10p more than mainland prices to account for shipping.
With all the negative stuff out the way, the air is cleaner, life is calmer; you feel more secure here than on the mainland. Raising your kids here in theory is great as you can let them out on the streets and you know that if they step one tootsie out of line, the neighbours will tell you all about it. Everyone knows everyone, probably related to someone, somehow. It's an excellent place to re-evaluate your life simply because you realise that you have so much going for life elsewhere. Plus, we have a couple of brilliant breathtaking festivals every year and Hendrix Played Here!!!!

An island off the south coast of England, the Isle of Wight is a land of beauty. It has a lot of nice seaside towns and they all have attractions. Some people equate it with being in England in the 1950s, but there's nothing wrong with that surely.
On the Isle of Wight there is a museum containing the skeleton of a Finback Whale (the second largest after the Blue Whale) which was washed up some years ago near The Needles.

The Isle of Wight is a brilliant place to live for people of all ages, we have some of the most popular business's in the UK and have fabulous scenery. We're famous for our Isle of Wight Festival which brings people from all over the UK.

Although we have had some ruff times in the past we are all fighting through it and making great friends doing so.

The Isle of Wight has a very stereotypical view that we only have elderly people here - this isn't true. We have a wide scale of people children to the elderly.

Known by many as the Isle of Shite. "People" from this godforsaken island are seen as inbred weirdos by most. They have a cool glass making factory.
