What to see
Yarmouth Castle provides a magnificent picnic spot, with views over the Solent for a lovely relaxing family day by the sea. Step inside and discover the atmospheric recreation of how the rooms were used in the 16th century, and see the exhibition about the many wrecks which occurred in the treacherous stretch of sea which the castle overlooks.
Built on the north shore of the Isle of Wight to guard the Solent the remains of Fort Victoria now house ‘Sunken Secrets’ an Underwater Archaeology Centre , a Planetarium, a Reptilarium and a Model Railway.
The surrounding Country Park offers Seashore and Woodland walks and the site is one of the best vantage points for watching the Solent's boats and shipping.
The Forts attractions together with the availability of a Countryside Ranger to give guided walks of the seashore and woodland make Fort Victoria an excellent interesting and educational visit for school groups and any visitor to the Isle of Wight who wants to combine leisure with education. Why not stop for lunch at Verdi's Cafe whilst looking out over the Solent, then get back to the rest of the fun that the park offers.
