One of the island’s favourite beaches and biggest expanses of open downland. Spend a day at one of the Isle of Wight’s favourite spots. From beach to open downland, there’s plenty of space to explore, search for fossils, spot local wildlife, surf, cycle and ride your horse.
An impressive flank of open downland Take a walk, bring a picnic or try something more adventurous – there’s so much to see and do on a day out at Chillerton Down.

It is partly owned by us and partly protected by our covenants to preserve the beauty of the landscape.
A Victorian fort gradually being restored and dramatic chalk cliffs, open downland and coastal views. Resembling from the distance a grassy mound, Bembridge Fort on the Isle of Wight has long been a subject of interest to both local people and holidaymakers. Now thanks to the support of two groups of volunteers you are able to see inside this Victorian fort and to discover its history.
Dramatic views from the highest point on the Island. It’ll take more than one visit to admire Adonis blue butterflies on Bonchurch Down, witness the wonderful show of bluebells or the blooming heather of Luccombe Down, spot our herd of feral goats or look up for buzzards and ravens soaring over the steep slopes, but you can always try!
Paths wind through ancient oak woodland with sunny glades. Borthwood Copse changes with the seasons and is a lovely place to walk at any time of year. Why not explore this wonderful site yourself? It’s a great place to celebrate the great outdoors. Why not try our red squirrel walk? This 1¼-mile walk takes you through the beautiful ancient woodland of Borthwood Copse, an excellent place to spot red squirrels throughout the year. In spring the woodland floor is carpeted with bluebells. Red squirrels are most active and visible in autumn.

A wild rocky coast with jutting cliffs, a windswept down and sheltered wooded valley. Built in the 14th century, high on a hill overlooking Chale Bay on the Isle of Wight, St Catherine’s Oratory is the stuff of colourful legend involving the Lord of the Manor. Known locally as the ‘Pepperpot’, we look after all that remains of the Oratory in partnership with English Heritage.

St Helens Duver is a lovely place to relax or gently wander. There are sandy beaches, rock pools, sand dunes and coastal woods all within a small area. There is easy access from the car park onto the Duver with its short turf and gently undulating ground and views over Bembridge Harbour. The beach is also very close at hand and although it can get quite busy in the summer there’s space for everyone if you wander further along the shore. The Duver has an interesting history as a Victorian golf course with royal patronage. But now it is a fascinating place to look for wildlife from burrowing digger wasps to wasp spiders, and tiny flowers or water birds over the harbour.

Our plans are to lease one of the main hangars at Sandown Airport and convert this into our first aviation museum. This will allow us to both build our collection and establish the museum as a viable tourist attraction.

The airport is located on the main route between Newport & Sandown and is in the ideal position for attracting visitors. The airport is also home to Airframe Assemblies one of the worlds leading Spitfire and classic war bird restoration companies and these aircraft are regular visitors to the airfield. The museum will be free to enter and staffed by volunteers, enabling maximum access to all visitors.
