Located at the heart of the Isle of Wight, you’ll find everything you need in Newport. Wherever you stay on the island, Newport isn’t far away. You can find plenty of pretty views of the River Medina and even hop on a boat here. The largest town on the island has everything from supermarkets to high street shops, stocking all of the usual things you’ll find in stores across the UK. However, look a little closer and you’ll find some unique spots to explore.
Find amazing fine dining restaurants in the town centre, a thriving arts community by the river and even a castle to discover on the outskirts. Newport has plenty of things to do for all the family but if you fancy heading further afield, you’ll find Cowes and East Cowes to the north. Sailing fanatics will love the annual sailing regatta here and history geeks can find solitude at Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s summer home in East Cowes. To the south of Newport, you can visit the popular chocolate box village of Godshill or head further south to enjoy the botanic gardens of Ventnor and the golden sands of South Wight.
