Cowes WeekCowes, Isle Of Wight
One of the great things about Lendy Cowes Week is that spectators can watch much of the racing from the shore. The Green and The Parade are great places to view the action and spectators also now have a number of fantastic opportunities to go afloat.
If you’re spending time in the town itself there’s no shortage of things to see and do. Cowes boasts a host of clothing and lifestyle shops where you can indulge in some retail therapy, as well as many art galleries and other delights. You can enjoy a coffee or long lunch at one of the many pubs or restaurants, pay a visit to Cowes Maritime Museum on Beckford Road, or hop over to East Cowes on the floating bridge to visit the Classic Boat Centre and Osborne House, once Queen Victoria’s holiday home.
