It may be late autumn and winter, but the Island still has things to do. Such is the climate of the Island that even in winter it is possible to perhaps cycle, run or walk some of the beautiful paths that dot the Island. There are events going on - The Literary festival or fireworks and Christmas brings its own ambience to the lovely towns and villages.

Cowes If you are coming from the mainland it is an excellent entry point from Southampton. Cowes itself is a very pleasant seaside town with a shingle beach. Plenty of shops and accommodation, but in the summer it is best to book, for the town is a popular holiday destination not only for yachting folk.
Havenstreet. The main place for the Isle of Wight Steam Railway events and the Railway Museum. The stations are Smallbrook, Ashey Havenstreet and Wootton. Havenstreet is only a short distance to Ryde.
Arreton is a very old village few miles east of Newport. Arreton Barns is situated in the village. There is a craft village and the Shipwreck Centre and Maritime Museum are within the complex.
Yarmouth Another of the entry ports to the Island, this time from the lovely town of Lymington. English Heritage own Yarmouth Castle. The town is a pleasant mix of pleasant country town and port.
We hope you have a pleasant stay and an enjoyable event.

There are some delightful cottages around the county. Probably one near where you would love to stay.
Want a cute car? Large car? Small car? Whatever you need you will find it here. You will probably find your favourite car hire firm here and Car Rentals do not add a penny to their price for looking all over for you!
Why not travel by Coach
If you do decide the leave the car at home and help the environment too, why not go National Express. They run coaches all over the country. Some pretty good fares too.
Just imagine - sit back and relax, no hassling with the traffic!!!
Do you know that you can book on your mobile phone and they will send the ticket as a text!!!!
Virgin Trains is an excellent main line railway.
