Pocket Guide: Cowes Cowes Maritime Museum Hotels

Located in the Solent, on the south coast of England, the Isle of Wight is a uniquely popular holiday destination for those with a love of all things nautical. The entire island is peppered with stunning beaches and picturesque harbours, but undoubtedly the hub of yachting activity is in the northern town of Cowes. Those looking for an insight into the town's heritage can find exactly that in Beckford Road's Cowes Maritime Museum. There are also plenty of exquisite hotels and B&Bs in town, to complete the perfect trip.

Cowes Maritime Museum

The Cowes Maritime Museum is located in the centre of town within Cowes Library. The museum was started back in the 1970s, thanks to the passion and effort of a number of the library staff at the time. Today, the museum's collection consists of ample models and photographs which detail the history of shipbuilding industry in Cowes and across the Isle of Wight.

Continue the Learning

Visitors who are particularly taken with the collection at the Cowes Maritime Museum can find further stimulation across the water in the East Cowes Classic Boat Museum. This similarly themed museum is home to more than 40 boats that can help shed some light on trends and techniques used, as well as the history of yacht making on the island.

Unwind in Lovely Cowes

A visit to Cowes isn't all about learning, though. There's also a bustling yet quaint high street, not to mention the breath-taking views which virtually surround the north coast town. The pedestrianised centre is filled with cute cafés and independent shops. Head to the town's northern edge to find spectacular views across the Solent, as well as a modest beach.

Hotels near the Maritime Museum

With many of the best hotels on the Isle of Wight located in or around Cowes, visitors can't go far wrong when choosing a place to stay. The northern edge of town is lined with spectacular historic buildings, many of which offer views across the Solent, to the mainland. Closer to the town centre, visitors can choose from a number of small guesthouses, many of which offer views out across the River Medina.
