Brading The Experience

Welcome to Brading the Experience

The original Isle of Wight Wax Works Museum and Animal World was founded by Graham Osborne-Smith and opened in 1965. Today it is still owned by an Islander who has developed this historical and wonderfully interesting attraction into more than just a Wax Works. It now has many exciting ongoing developments, and in particular the huge new extension - World of Wheels in 2005. The site also boasts a unique and beautifully themed café serving homemade delights, a discount factory outlet store and a gift shop.
