Isle of Wight shoppers taking a day trip to the mainland will be able to see the famous Coca-Cola truck today (Saturday).

The iconic red vehicle, which became famous from the brand’s 1995 Christmas commercial, is stopping at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth for the first time.

It is part of its annual festive tour of the UK and Ireland.      

As usual, guests can visit the truck for free and visitors can expect to receive some free samples of the fizzy beverage on arrival.

Guests will also be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble, inviting families to step into a winter wonderland.

There will also be a Coca-Cola Christmas choir.

Yvonne Clay, Centre Director at Gunwharf Quays, said: “We are thrilled to welcome the Coca-Cola truck to Gunwharf Quays this Christmas, and as this is the first time the truck has ever stopped at the shopping destination, we are particularly excited!"

The truck can be found at Gunwharf Quays’ Plaza from 12pm to 8pm.
