Yarmouth is a bustling market town rich in history which is evident as you walk around. Bundle up and take a stroll along the Grade II listed pier for stunning views across the Solent (also a perfect spot for fishing) and pay a visit to Yarmouth Castle, tucked away at the side of Wightlink’s ferry dock.
The George Hotel provides much of a historical adventure itself, as well as culinary delights for even the most discerning foodie. Choice is key, with several dining options on offer. Go for a relaxed and informal (but incredibly tasty) meal in the Conservatory. Serving brasserie style food showcasing a range of local produce. The star of the show though has to be the uninterrupted views across the garden to the sea.
Yarmouth is no stranger to wonderful independent shops including galleries selling wonderful pictures of our beautiful Island (the perfect gift for someone on the mainland to remind them of what they are missing) or pop in to My Funky Bag, a fairly new addition to the town. Making accessories from recycled plastic bottles, look stylish while ticking off those eco creds.
For outdoor lovers, Harwoods is your one stop shop for outdoor gear. One of the largest chandlers on the Island they stock a vast area of marine equipment as well as sailing wet weather gear. If your feet are firmly planted on dry land, browse the kitchenware sections.
Warm chilly fingers on your shopping trip with a visit to one of the quaint cafes. PO41 has a hot chocolate to die for, silky smooth and served in creative cups designed by a local artist.
