The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is possibly the best known of England's islands, the Isle of Wight lies in the English Channel, separated from the mainland by the Solent. A ridge of chalk, one of the thickest in the British Isles, runs across the centre of the Island, ending dramatically in the three white sea stacks known as the Needles, from the last of which rises a red and white banded lighthouse that was built in 1859.
The Island's history goes back 10,000 years-and before that, dinosaurs roamed the countryside. The Romans called it Vectis; they arrived here in 50 A.D., stayed for 400 years and left a legacy of two well preserved Roman villas for us to enjoyed today.
The Normans built Carisbrooke Castle and further fortifications were built by the Tudors. By the 19th-century, the Island had become a tourist destination, and Queen Victoria bought Osborne house in Cowes as a summertime retreat, returning there to die in 1901.
About half of the island is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, and there are some 40 sites of special scientific interest, with habitat supporting the now rare red squirrel and the Glanville fritillary, and endemic orange-red butterfly. Coastal path and several long-distance trials enable the visitor to enjoy the islands downs and woodlands as well as its long sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and coastline.
Sandown, Shanklin, Ryde, Ventnor and Yarmouth are all family holiday destinations, but it is Cowes that is internationally known as a yachting centre, and Cowes week brings thousands of visitors for its highly competitive races. Another draw is the annual garlic Festival, and, for the young, the music festival and bestival.
