|Isle of Wight|
Off the south coast of England
The Isle of Wight is an island county located about five miles off the south coast of the English mainland. In the summer of 1991, Marjorie Dursley went on vacation to the Isle, and sent a postcard from there to her brother's family, which arrived at the same time as Harry Potter's Hogwarts acceptance letter.
