Things to see & do

Isle of Wight Arts: Open Studios
Click here to see the Facebook post Now a regular feature of Island Life, the Open Studios event will again spread over the whole Island for visitors and residents alike. There seem to be an incredible number and variety of artists on the island perhaps attracted by the special light which the surrounding sea reflects into the sky or maybe simply by the more relaxed lifestyle. The latest Artists Directory expresses the enormous range of styles and techniques used by the IOW artists. Seahorses Art Studio will join the event and will accompany the artists showing their work in the church hall next door. Visitors will be able to visit the two venues as it was last year. Please tell your friends to come along and support this great initiative.

Yarmouth Hire Centre
The Isle of Wight is the ideal place to head if you enjoy cycling. Off-road there are fantastic trails with stunning views. On-road, we have miles of quiet country lanes and small roads to potter along. Whatever the route there are great pubs and cafes for refuelling.
