Cowes Week Run Down
Shepards Wharf - Next to the chain ferry this smaller venue has acoustic music and cocktails along with the 151 club from Chelsea.
Cowes Yacht Haven - The main arena with the largest beer tent, main music stage and a range of great eateries.
The Parade - Next to the water and now called 'the village' it has two waterfront bars alongside places to grab a bite to eat.
Northwood House - Above the town of Cowes, and impossible to miss due to the Red Funnel Big Wheel. Boasting a great outdoor bar with fantastic views this is a place not to be missed
