PRESS UPDATE – 26 AUGUST 2015

Visit Isle of Wight continues to communicate with travel writers to generate media interest for the Island.  We do this by presenting creative pitches, co-ordinating press trips, writing enticing press releases and making connections with our contacts in the media.  In the past few weeks, this has resulted in media coverage in several publications including digital and print national newspapers, namely:

The Times – Bike & Sail holidays

MBR magazine

The Telegraph – Julia Margaret Cameron’s Isle of Wight 

Jamie Oliver magazine – Compton Bay

Daily Mail – Ventnor Botanic Gardens

Sunday World Magazine, Ireland – destination feature

Het Laatste Nieuws, Belgium – circulation of around 300,000 – and is the lead story in a major travel feature on UK islands(Front cover of publication)

My Weekly Royal Special, with a nice inclusion about the Garlic Festival
