No. 4 buses from Ryde and No. 5 buses from Newport both stop in Well Road and from there a 1 minute walk will take you to the Heritage Centre. There is free parking in Clarence Road but time limits apply.

The Heritage Centre

Is less than a 5 minute walk away from the Red Funnel Terminal and a similar distance from the Floating Bridge which connects with West Cowes. There is a car park in Maresfield Road (pay, longstay) and Waitrose (free, shortstay).


East Cowes Heritage was formed in 1992 by members of the East Cowes Group of the Isle of Wight Society. With help from the Rural Development Commission, the present centre was opened in 1996.

East Cowes is a small town with a great history and through the services provided the Centre aims to preserve and present the town's industrial and social heritage before reminders of the past are lost for ever.
