Newport is the Isle of Wight’s county town, situated at the heart of the Island and built around the River Medina.

The bustling market town of Newport is the proud home to the largest array of independent shops and chain stores, pubs and cafés, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and attractions on the Isle of Wight. Being centrally located, Newport makes the perfect base for exploring the rest of the Island and has the best and most regular transport links.

Located at the head of the River Medina, and just a short walk from the town centre, Newport Harbour is a journey back in time, with a pretty quayside to enjoy. Seaclose Park in Newport, located on the east bank of the River Medina, is home to the world famous Isle of Wight Festival, which is held annually in June.
