Isle of Wight Tourist Information


Isle of Wight (IOW) Tourist and Visitor Information with links to heritage, nature and tourist attractions, many with details of disabled access

The island and county of Isle of Wight sits just of the Hampshire coast of Southern England. It is often talked of as being a little old fashioned, but not in an unkind way. The island retains much of the good things of traditional seaside holidays while adding contemporary touches. The island is famous for its Cowes Week and its world class sailing. The Island also hosts the Isle of Wight Festival – one of UK’s ‘must go’ music festivals. The island feels different from the mainland, there is something unique about it, which I can not describe but I’m sure you will experience yourself when you visit.
