Camping sites, touring caravan parks, campgrounds, trailer parks in Cowes.
The towns of Cowes and East Cowes lie on either side of the mouth of the River Medina and are linked by a floating-bridge ferry. A combination of location and old-fashioned enterprise have turned the sail-filled resort of Cowes into England's leading yachting centre. The annual Cowes Regatta, run by the Royal Yacht Squadron, has been held since 1776, while Cowes Week, which is staged annually each August, was once a key part of the 'high season' enjoyed by wealthier Victorians.
Nearby is Osborne House, formerly a country retreat for Queen Victoria – who died here in 1901 – and Prince Albert. Now controlled by English Heritage, it has a superb garden with views over the Solent. Swiss Cottage is a charming chalet in the grounds and once rang to the sounds of royal children playing within.
Appuldurcombe House is the impressive shell of an 18th-century mansion built in 1701 by Sir Robert Worsley. Now run by English Heritage it has parkland landscaped by the great 'Capability' Brown.
