Thorness Bay Cowes IOW

going over at the end of april to thoness bay , not our usual sort of holiday but seeing as the royal wedding is taking place on the friday & we are on holiday on the monday thought we would book a long weekend , not been to the IOW for about 10 years so probably a few things have changed . Any tips anyone , thanks.

Thanks Dave & Michele

That should get you started. The Island still has a delightfully 'old fashioned' style compared to the mainland.

Worth a visit: Needles, Osbourne House. Avoid Shanklin Chine! We paid a fortune for our family to walk down the Chine and you there is no re entry!

Cowes is ok but just full of sailing shops - go for Shanklin or Sandown instead.

Have a lovely time, we did x
