Come in the summer months and enjoy 'Cowes Week', the largest sailing regatta in the world. The area has a rich maritime history and needless to say sailing is popular here; you can hire a yacht or enrol for lessons at the UK Sailing Academy. If that seems a bit hands-on for you, you could always just explore the town's maritime heritage and maybe visit one of the local museums which tells the tale of the towns rich sailing heritage .

Osborne House, the former residence of Queen Victoria, is just outside East Cowes, and a trip here is the perfect way to spend a sunny day. It's one of the most beautiful spots imaginable, with its opulent Victorian architecture and walled garden.

Both parts of town are filled with award-winning restaurants, if you fancy dining out, and the emphasis is firmly on tasty local produce. You'll also find several cosy, traditional pubs, serving hearty pub grub with child-friendly menus. Or why not just relax at the Marina and watch the boats go by as you sample some local fish and chips or treat the family to an ice cream?
