Overall Guide : The Osbourne House, built in an Italian style of architecture, is a major historical landmark of the island. It has been the residence of the royal family of England, and the rooms as well as the museum housed inside are... more reminiscent of the Victorian Age. Wildlife enthusiasts can enjoy a trip to the Butterfly World and Fountain World which houses a variety of butterflies and tropical birds. A separate attraction is the Fountain World, which displays manicured gardens and pretty fountains. Visitors can also attend the popular annual rock festival, the Isle of Wight Festival, which covers various musical events featuring different genres of music. The festival is attended by millions of people; stalwarts like Jimi Hendrix have performed at the event. The Amazon World houses almost 300 species of exotic animals and birds. It also houses an adventure playground and an international breeding centre which houses endangered species.
