This island is situated just off the south coast of England,some 3 miles from Portsmouth's Coastline.A good ferry service makes it easily accessible,the ferry from Southampton taking about 1 hour for the journey across to East Cowes.
It is a popular island for holidaymakers as it has several nice beaches, and is also a good choice for walkers of all abilities,birdwatchers and yachtsman.TIP : Take a good map,as the signposts are scarce!

    I shouldn't have read this page, as I now want to go and see the House and its gorgeous gardens, the bathing cart, the Chapel and those marvelous views! Excellent page!

    Fine photos in your tips and travelogues! My daughter went to school for two years on the Isle of Wight, at Bembridge. (The school no longer exists because it was on a cliff that fell into the sea piece by piece over the years.)
