The Diamond Jewel in the Solent, steeped in history yet innovative. Cowes is a world renowned yachting centre with a great maritime tradition and steeped with some quite incredible historic events and people.
Visit the Parade or Princes Green. Enjoy the passing panorama, walk through Bath Road and the narrow High Street; there are many interesting, independent shops and restaurants to visit, and of course feel proud as Cowes entertains yachting enthusiasts during Cowes Week. Take a walk round Northwood Park; it is a wonderful place and the House continues to go from strength to strength.
2015 was the bicentenary of the Royal Yacht Squadron and Cowes is right to be grateful that they have made their home in Cowes Castle. It has been their presence that has shaped Cowes and of which we are very proud.
Thanks to all those businesses big and small, many continuing Cowes’ fine maritime tradition and to the many unsung volunteers whose dedication and hard work make me feel very proud to say “I live in Cowes”. Enjoy your time here.
