What the North Wight has to offer:
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 East Cowes and West Cowes. To the West are the villages of Shalfleet and Newtown Creek with a stunning Nature Reserve; to the East are Wootton Bridge and Quarr Abbey.
Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle are both with English Heritage, shrouded in their history and surrounded by beautiful grounds, definitely worth a visit. Quarr Abbey, further down the coast from Osborne, is a spectacular working Monastery with tea rooms. The Roman Villa in Brading often has educational classes in the café. Newtown is one of the oldest towns in the UK, situated near a nature reserve, a lovely place to walk and enjoy the wildlife.
Best known as the world's premier yachting centre, Cowes is the Island's main port. Yachtsmen from all over the world participate in the season's prestigious sailing events, the best known being Cowes Week, held annually at the beginning of August. Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some excellent shops, many catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs.
