The England region

The North of the Isle of Wight is home to the County Town of Newport, with the Medina River running through it towards the Solent dividing West Cowes and East Cowes.

Queen Victoria's residence of Osborne House (East Cowes) and Carisbrooke Castle (Carisbrook) are both English Heritage venues and are well worth a visit. Quarr Abbey, further down the coast from Osborne, is a spectacular working Monastery with tea rooms.

To the West are the villages of Shalfleet and Newtown Creek with a stunning Nature Reserve. Newtown is one of the oldest towns in the UK (Once a Rotten Borough).

There are several forests and many coastal walks to enjoy as well as a dedicated cycle path network.


Cowes is renowned as the Yachting Mecca of the World and bustles with sailors from every corner of the Globe. Cowes is the Isle of Wight's main port with a natural harbour at the mouth of the River Medina. Cowes is a small town of around 20,000 inhabitants with a friendly, cosmopolitan atmosphere.

The High Street is pedestrianised, allowing good access to shops, art galleries, maritime museums, restaurants, and pubs. Above Cowes High Street and overlooking the Solent is Northwood House and Park. This classical style mansion dates from 1837 and was given to the town in 1929, together with its 26 acres of grounds. The grounds now provide public tennis courts, bowling greens, and a children's playground.
