Product Description

The Isle of Wight was a sleepy backwater until the early 19th century and most of the population were reliant on agriculture to make a living. But the construction of Ryde Pier in 1814 and regular visits by Queen Victoria to Osborne House saw a change in the Island’s economy and it became more dependant on tourism. Public transport did not exist on the Island until the late 1700s, but with the coming of the railways and upgrading of the highways, visitors could take advantage of modern travel and visit all parts of the Island with speed and in comfort.
