Art, Crafts & Theatre

The Island is rich in culture and hertiage. Famous poets and artists have found the island to be a brilliant place to get their creative juices flowing! The most famous is Alfred Lord Tennyson, who used to stay in Freshwater, has a monument placed on the top of Tennyson Down.

The island is also home to plenty of independent artists with shops and galleries in towns across the island
