The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is just 23 miles by 13 miles and is located just off the south coast of mainland UK with ferry crossings from Southampton, Portsmouth and Lymington. Known as the Garden Isle because of its stunning natural beauty, the Isle of Wight is the perfect UK destination for holidays and tourists, catering for all age groups.
Due to the warmer climate that The Isle of Wight enjoys, being gently warmed by the Gulf Stream, the Island is often warmer than the rest of Mainland UK. It also helps to make The Isle of Wight a year round destination. The Island in Autumn and the winter months is peaceful and breathtaking. Whilst in Spring you can walk through woodland carpeted with Bluebells.
Yarmouth is located on the western side of the Island and the town has grown up as a result of its natural harbour, which is guarded by Yarmouth Castle, a fortification built to protect the Solent from invading forces by Henry VIII in 1547. The Harbour attracts many yachts and motor cruisers which take advantage of the estuary afforded by the River Yar.
This is a bustling town which has an active community all year round. Wightlink Ferries dock here from Lymington, the crossing taking just half an hour. It is the boats and yachts, however, which attract much of the business and custom. The square has a varied range of shops and delightful eating establishments and if you have not been to Yarmouth before, but feel it looks familiar, it is because much of the TV series “Rocket to the Moon” was filmed here.
From Yarmouth you can pick up a boat which will take you fishing in the Solent or perhaps off the Needles. There are also walks along the promenade and the former railway track, called “The Causeway”, which provides a delightful walk through trees and along the banks of the Yar. This will take you towards Freshwater and while you are walking you might see one of the Islands red squirrels, a fox or many species of birds.
The Pier at Yarmouth is also a great place to go fishing. Trips leave from there for various destinations, and in the later summer months, the Waverley, an old paddle steamer, collects people for a round trip of the Island. If you think the Island is beautiful now, wait 'til you've seen it from the sea.
Some of the more upmarket hotels are located around the Yarmouth area and are ideal for places to eat.
