Isle of Wight
Carefree short breaks & holidays
There are many shops on the Island selling everything from handcrafted jewellery and sculptured glass ornaments to stunning photographs, prints and modern art. The beautiful and varied scenery of the Isle of Wight has long been an inspiration to artists and craft makers alike.
For an extra special gift, why not visit one of the Island's many antique booksellers and shops - you never know, you may even discover a first edition or a family heirloom. Newport is awash with larger retail outlets, while the Island's other towns and villages each offer an individual 'Island' shopping experience.
Here is just a sample of galleries, studios and craft outlets for you to visit and enjoy. Alternatively you could shop the easy way by choosing a gift from their online selections.
As well as traditional sized photographs of the Island, they also specialise in panoramic photos, some with a full 360-degree view. An extensive online store photos with many sizes offered, with the option of buying a photograph framed.
