Isle of Wight, England

The Isle of Wight is an English island and county, off the southern English coast, to the south of the county of Hampshire.

Popular from Victorian times as a holiday resort, the Isle of Wight is known for its natural beauty and as home to the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes, a town that hosts a world famous annual regatta.

Queen Victoria made Osborne House on the Isle of Wight her summer home for many years and, as a result, it became a major holiday resort for members of European royalty.  During her reign, in 1897, the World's first radio station was set up by Marconi, at the Needles battery, at the western tip of the Isle of Wight.

The Isle of Wight Festival took place near Afton Down, West Wight in 1970 was notable for being one of the last public performances by Jimi Hendrix.
