Towns & Villages
South of Ryde is one of the Isle of Wight’s oldest towns, Brading, set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and perhaps best known for its roman villa.
The eastern side of the island is dotted with beautiful coastal villages including Seaview, a popular yachting centre; the small village of Bembridge, best known for its large harbour; and St Helens with its large village green.
Shanklin lies to the south of Sandown and is famed for its beautiful beaches and sub-tropical gardens alongside years of seaside tradition.
Between Shanklin and Newport sits Godshill, one of the prettiest villages on the Isle of Wight, awash with thatched cottages and a medieval church.
On the south coast lies the charming town of Ventnor, a Victorian health resort set on a hill with vintage shops and a sheltered beach.
Last but not least, Cowes on the north coast, an historic town split by the River Medina and internationally famed for its sailing events.
