Yarmouth is a town located on the north west coast if the Isle of Wight and provides access to the island via the ferry services from the English mainland that use the town's harbour. The town lies on the banks of the River Yar and contains some of the oldest architecture to be found on the Isle of Wight, including a 16th century castle. The town's harbour is always a hive of activity with both ferries and smaller pleasure vessels, and there are many things to see and do in the town itself. The Grade II listed pier is a must see attraction if only to take in the lovely views across The Solent to the English mainland and is also a great place for a spot of fishing. Located to the side of the ferry dock is Yarmouth Castle and is also a great spot for fantastic sea views and is a favourite location for family picnics during the summer. Other popular pastimes are walks and exploring in the local area with two “Sites of Special Scientific Interest” nearby, the estuary of the River Yar and Bouldnor and Hamstead to the East of the town.
