English Heritage Members can win a luxurious weekend away at The Royal in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight with Wightlink. Surrounded by cliffs and windswept headlands forming an especially beautiful part of the coastal footpath and Channel, Ventnor possesses an unrivalled and enduring beauty.

Built in 1832, The Royal is one of the oldest hotels on the island and shares the rare privilege of being one of only 30 establishments to be listed in every Michelin Guide since it was first published in 1911. The Royal was also the first hotel on the island to achieve four AA stars and has held two AA rosettes for excellent food for more 20 years. The nearby beach, heated outdoor pool and daily high tea make this a great choice for families.

The prize includes:

  • Two-night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast (valid from 1 March 2021 to 1 June 2021) for two people
  • Afternoon tea for two (valid from 1 September 2020 to 23 December 2021) 
  • Return ferry crossing for a car and two passengers. Travel on either the Portsmouth to Fishbourne or Lymington to Yarmouth route


For your chance to win this luxury break, complete our prize draw form by 11.59pm on Monday 31 August 2020. The winner will be contacted by Tuesday 8 September 2020. Good luck!
