Newport town guide


At the heart of the Island, Newport is the capital town and main shopping centre. Excellent roads and bus services make it easy to reach from anywhere on the Island and the Southern Vectis bus terminus is right in the centre of town. Enjoy browsing in the major chain stores or the many individual and intriguing little shops to be found in the lanes leading off the High Street and two main squares.


To the South of the island is Carisbrooke and Carisbrooke Castle, famous for the imprisonment of King Charles I.


Newport is home to a large variety of shops, pubs, bars and restuarants.
