Visit Cowes and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Cowes, Isle of Wight. Cowes Week in August is one of the great events of the yachts-man's year. The headquarters of the Royal Yacht Squadron on Victoria Parade below Cowes Castle, the main boatyards and moorings, and most features of interest to the visitor lie West of the River Medina which divides the town. During the Second World War the castle was the chief operations centre for the Normandy landings. Northwood House has line gardens and rare trees.
Cowes is the entry port to the island from Southampton and regular ferry services cross the Solent.
The first English settlers for Maryland sailed from Cowes in 1633 and Dr Arnold of Rugby fame was born here.
