The Isle of Wight is the largest island off England. It is a diamond shaped island lying just off the coast of Hampshire and separated from it by the Solent. It is a separate county with its own Lord Lieutenant and County Council. Travel to the island is by ferry from many ports on the mainland, including Lymington, Southampton and Portsmouth.
With its diverse landscapes and dramatic coastline, over half of the island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Queen Victoria loved it and made her summer home at Osborne House near East Cowes. The Needles lighthouse, at the most western point of the island, has long greeted sailors on their return from distant voyages. The red squirrel is still abundant on the island, although it is sadly becoming extinct on the mainland. Extraordinary fossils have been found all over the island.
The main industry of the island is tourism followed by agriculture. In addition to the normal crops, garlic, lavender and vineyards grow successfully in the mild climate. Boat-building, sail-making and other light industries relating to maritime activities contribute to the economy of the island, as do companies making wind-turbines, light aircraft and hovercraft – and the three breweries. Festivals include Cowes Week, the Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival, which bring people to the island from all quarters of the globe.
