When it comes to things to do when staying at The Fountain Inn, then the annual Cowes Week Regatta is the biggie. After all, it's one of the oldest and most respected regattas in the world. But there are plenty of other things to see and enjoy all year round on the Isle of Wight too. There's Cowes Maritime Museum, the Sir Max Aitken Museum, The Wight Military & Heritage Museum, and the National Trust sites of the Old Town Hall, Newtown Nature Reserve, and Mottistone Gardens. Or discover Queen Victoria's palatial holiday home at English Heritage Osborne House. How about a fun adventure on the Cowes Mystery Trail, or a trip to Alum Bay and the Needles?
