Further information

Hampshire is a county on the southern coast of England in the United Kingdom. Today, Hampshire is a popular holiday area. Its tourist attractions include many seaside resorts with national parks in both New Forest and the South Downs (covering some 45% of the county). The Isle of Wight is a county and the largest island of England, located in the English Channel, on average about 2–4 miles (3–6 km) off the south coast of the county of Hampshire, separated from the mainland by a strait called the Solent. The Island is known for its natural beauty, its sailing based at the town of Cowes, and its resorts, which have been holiday destinations since Victorian times.

In the past, the Isle of Wight has been part of Hampshire. In 1890, it became an independent administrative county.
