The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is situated approximately 3 miles off the English Southern Coastline. It is known for its breathtaking scenery with much of the Island being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island first became popular as a holiday destination during Victorian times and its unique charm still entices over 2.5 million visitors each year. It is quite easy to appreciate why the Island attracts so many, with its scenic coastline, award winning golden beaches, charming little villages and temperate climate – in fact the Island can boast more hours of sunshine than most other destinations in Britain.
For the more energetic, the Island offers over 500 miles of maintained footpaths which makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists alike. The Islands towns offer a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including many 'High Street' names together with popular cafes, bars and restaurants - some even being awarded the 'Michelin Star'. All in all the Island is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and with activities for all interests.
St Helens, Isle of Wight
St Helens is a coastal village situated between the neighbouring villages of Bembridge and Seaview. The 'hub' of St Helens is the village green where local football and cricket matches are held. There is also a children's playground together with seating where views across Bembridge Harbour can be enjoyed.
The annual carnival, which is normally held during August, also takes place around the green. It can be said that the village green is truly the centre of village life. The local beach, known as The Duver, is a great place for the kids to play. From here, fantastic views across The Solent and of St Helens Fort can be enjoyed.
Bembridge Harbour is very picturesque and a walk across the causeway is a must. The local fishing boats also moor here and their catches of fresh fish and shellfish can be bought locally. After a hard day exploring the Island, why not partake in a quick pint from the village pub whilst watching a spot of cricket on the green...
