Alum Bay & Yarmouth

Alum Bay is well known for its multi-coloured sand cliffs and stunning views across the Solent. Many homes around the world have a glass object filled with sand as a memento of a visit to Alum Bay and The Needles, but perhaps less well known is the recent history of Alum Bay. Approximately 70 million years ago, the sea bed rose, was eroded and then sank beneath the sea again. The new sea was shallow and it laid down a series of sands and clays. Some 10 million years later, movement in the bedrock caused these sediments to be pushed nearly vertically to form the multi-coloured cliffs that are visible today.

Yarmouth town is located on the North-West of the island and acts as one of the gateways to the Island with one of the main ferry services operating from its harbour. This historic port town sits at the mouth of the River Yar and contains some of the oldest architecture on the Isle of Wight, including a 16th Century castle.

Ryde & Rosemary Vineyard

Ryde is the largest town on the Isle of Wight, and with its prominent position along the seafront and hovercraft and ferry links it is often referred to as ‘Gateway to the Island'. In addition to an expanse of sandy beaches which stretch right along the town, Ryde has a great selection of boutique shops, museums and galleries for you to visit along with lots of other things to see and do along its esplanade.

The Rosemary Vineyard boasts some the most beautiful views that the island has to offer. Stroll around the vines and discover the different varieties that are grown and the way that traditional vineyards are planted. You can also tour around the winery and see the different equipment that is used during wine production and also learn about a typical year in the life of the Rosemary Vineyard.
