Yarmouth, Isle of Wight
Yarmouth is located on the western side of the Island at the mouth of the Yar estuary. The historic little town has grown as a result of its natural harbour, guarded by Yarmouth Castle, built by Henry VIII in 1547 The harbour attracts international yachts and motor cruisers, whose crews take advantage of the moorings to enjoy the lively range of shops, and places to eat and drink in the town. Annual festivals such as 'Old Gaffers weekend' bring extra interest and fun. Wightlink Ferries dock here from Lymington, after a crossing of just under half an hour.
The picturesque narrow streets and town square are lined by flower decked shops and pubs; restaurants range from Michelin star quality through family-friendly pubs to cafes with outside tables for celebrating fine weather late into the evening, many meals having an emphasis on local produce and freshly caught fish.
