Isle of Wight
Carefree short breaks & holidays
Following a local government expenditure review, a decision was made to close all of the Island's tourist information centres with effect from March 2011. Visitor Information Points are now provided at various locations around the Isle of Wight courtesy of transport operator Southern Vectis.
Mobile visitor information assistants are located in the coastal towns of Cowes, Shanklin and Sandown. They operate between 9.30am and 2.30pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Assistants can be recognised by their distinctive red uniforms.
