Isle Of Wight

England, United Kingdom
 (6 votes, 6 reviews)
The Isle of Wight is a British island and county of England, located 3–5 miles (5–8 km) from the south coast of the mainland in the English Channel. It is separated from the mainland by the Solent and is situated south of the county of Hampshire. The island is known for its outstanding natural beauty, its world-famous sailing based at Cowes, and its resorts, which have been popular since Victorian times as holiday destinations.
The island has a rich history, including a brief status as an
independent kingdom in the 15th century. Until 1995, in common with
Jersey and Guernsey, the island had its own Governor - most notably Lord Mountbatten from 1969–1974, after which he became Lord Lieutenant until his asassination in 1979.
