Local Guide to Bembridge… 23 Feb 2022
Welcome to the first in a series of local guides to the Isle of Wight. With eight offices across the Island, we think we are well placed to give you a local’s guide to the area, starting off with Bembridge…
Laying claim to being the largest village in England, Bembridge is set on the most easterly point of the Island and has become synonymous with sailing and bustling village life. The busy harbour has a range of houseboats, fishing boats and even a cafe where you can taste some of the freshest crab around, caught just off of Bembridge Ledge!
The village has plenty of well-stocked shops, including fashion and home boutiques, a bakery, a butcher, a florist etc, as well as hair and beauty salons.
There are plenty of places to eat or just grab a cup of coffee. Several of the pubs and cafes sit right by the water and most are well-known for serving Bembridge caught seafood.
Going to the beach is a way of life on the Isle of Wight and Bembridge does not disappoint with three popular beaches – Lane End, The Ledge and Bembridge Beach, plus Whitecliff Bay just around the corner. The village is also host to some of the Island’s iconic local landmarks, including the National Trust owned windmill and Bembridge Lifeboat Station. The station stands offshore and is an impressive, much-photographed site.
Hose Rhodes Dickson regularly support events that take place in the village, including the famous Bembridge in Bloom and the atmospheric Street Fair.
