Cowes 'has plenty to see and do'

Tourists going on Isle of Wight holidays have been advised to spend some time in the coastal town of Cowes, as there is plenty to see and do.

The destination is probably best known for hosting the annual sailing regatta Cowes Week but visitors will find there is a lot more to the town, according to a report by Travelbite.

Cowes was highlighted as a place well worth checking out no matter what time of the year it is, due to "its winding narrow streets, maritime museums, tiny boutique shops and fantastic brasseries and restaurants".

The website advised those on Isle of Wight holidays to also pay a visit to the former home of Queen Victoria at Osborne House, as well as taking a ride on the open-top bus to the beaches at Shanklin or Sandown.

Cowes Week gets underway on August 6th this year and is set to see hundreds if not thousands of sailing fanatics head to the Isle of Wight for the event.
