Carisbrooke Castle, where Charles I was imprisoned is located outside Newport, the capital city of the island, with its attractive streets and squares. For nature lovers, New Town Creek Nature Reserve and the surrounding coastal walks offer visitors the chance to see many different birds and insect species.

Being situated in such a central location a car is not always necessary and if one wants to visit other parts of the island car and cycle hire are available in the town. At any time of the year Cliffhanger offers an ideal destination due to its proximity to the ferry and accessibility to the rest of the island.
