The Isle of Wight is hugely popular for having more attractions per square mile than anywhere else in the UK!

Whether you are into history and museums, theme parks and family attractions, farm animals and zoo animals, gardens or something else, you will find lots of attractions you’ll want to visit in Yarmouth and the surrounding area.

Yarmouth and West Wight

In Yarmouth town and well worth a visit are Yarmouth Pier, Yarmouth Castle, and St James’ Church.

Close by in West Wight and popular with families is Fort Victoria Country Park, with the Island Planetarium, and The Isle of Wight Reptilarium.

At the most western corner of the Island are the world famous Needles rocks. To the east of Yarmouth, is Newtown Old Town Hall.

History lovers should head to Tennyson’s Farringford House, Dimbola Museum & Galleries, the Mottistone Gardens and Estate, and the Calbourne Watermill & Rural Museum, and even the small Brighstone Village Museum.

Just south of Brightstone on the southwest coast is Isle of Wight Pearl.

Around The Island

If you’re interested in nature and animals, then head to Amazon World, Butterfly World, The Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, the Monkey Haven, or Wildheart Animal Sanctuary.

Dinosaur fans will have a super time at Dinosaur Isle. All-time family favourites include Blackgang Chine, Carisbrooke Castle, Isle of Wight Steam Railway, and Robin Hill Country Park.

Queen Victoria’s Osborne House in East Cowes is a bucket-list destination, with nearby Quarr Abbey, Bembridge Windmill and Brading Roman Villa also to be found on the eastern side of the Island. Arreton Barns houses the Island’s largest arts and crafts centre and nearby is The Garlic Farm.
