The Isle of Wight is an island in the English Channel located four miles off the coast of Hampshire. The island is famous for its holiday destinations and is known for its mild climate, coastal scenery and verdant landscapes. Its county town is Newport which is situated to the north centre of the island and has good transport links to all major towns on the island; Cowes, Ryde, Shanklin, Sandown, Ventnor and Yarmouth Isle of Wight.
For lovers of the great outdoors, the western reaches of the island are deemed as areas of 'Outstanding Natural Beauty', predominately rural, with dramatic coastlines. The island is also well known for its cycling and has a long tradition of rowing and sailing. Cowes is home to the longest reigning sailing regatta in the world!
For links to the mainland, the quickest public transport is via hovercraft, whilst there are ferry and catarmaran crossings to Southampton, Lymington and Portsmouth. Getting about on the island couldn't be easier, although there are no motorways, there are many dual carriage ways. Public transport is provided by a comprehensive bus network and a rail link between Shanklin and Ryde Pier Head. Air travel is available at the Isle of Wight and Bembridge Airports.
