East Cowes

East Cowes is a small town on the Northern coast of the Isle of Wight, and 4 miles from Newport (Isle of Wight).

It is connected to the much larger Cowes, on the other side of the River Medina, by a floating bridge.

East Cowes is where hovercraft have been made since their invention.

The car ferries for Southampton leave from here.

Norris Castle was built by the famous architect James Wyatt.
