Cowes is known as the Home of World Yachting. There are many yacht clubs, museums and other maritime interest things to do and see. Cowes is also well known for its maritime clothing shops. Outside of Cowes is the stunning scenery of the Island including the Needles, Tennyson Down and so on. The Isle of Wight is great for kids with two theme parks, great beaches and loads of other activities. the Island has a totally different feeling from the mainland despite its proximity. You can actually feel the stress dropping away when you arrive.
Cowes and East Cowes grew from a huddle of fisherman's shacks around two coastal forts built by Henry VIII on opposite banks of the River Medina and named after the two off-shore sandbanks or cows. The towns are linked by an old-fashioned chain ferry and have a tradition of fine ship building, dating from the reign of Elizabeth I. Then came the yacht building industry, as sailing became a popular sport, endorsed by the royal family. In 1854, the Royal Yacht Squadron was moved into Cowes Castle, the former Tudor fort, and the name of Cowes has been synonymous with yachting ever since.
Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some excellent shops, many catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs.
