Newport Police Local Neighbourhood

Geographically located in the centre of the Island, Newport is its principal town and main shopping centre. Excellent roads and bus services make it easy to reach from anywhere on the Island and the Southern Vectis bus terminus is right in the centre of town. Enjoy browsing in the major chain stores or the many individual and intriguing little shops to be found in the lanes leading off the High Street and two main squares.
Newport has two elegant squares and many fine town houses date from Georgian and early Victorian times. The colonnaded Guildhall, designed by John Nash, now houses the Museum of Island History and the Tourist Information Centre. Historic buildings have been restored to provide the tiny Apollo Theatre in Pyle Street and the Quay Arts Centre, housed in former warehouses, on the western bank of the river, where you will find pubs, sports facilities and a cycle way to Cowes.
