Wootton Bridge – close to the
ferry terminals of Fishbourne and East Cowes – has
a beautiful, rural setting and attracts many
ramblers anxious to take in fine views. The local
Mill Pond is a haven for herons, egrets and
kingfishers while red squirrels and dormice
inhabit the woodland.
The Parish Church of St. Edmunds dates back to the 11th century while The Butterfly and Fountain World form part of a garden centre complex just outside the village. The Isle of Wight Steam Railway and its restored engines run for five miles from here en route to Havenstreet, Ashey and Smallbrook.
