Stay safe Isle of Wight

As you enjoy everything the Island has to offer this summer, please continue to be careful. This will help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect the NHS.

There are some things we can all do to help stop the virus spreading:

How to stay safe

Testing regularly

Test, record, repeat...and isolate!

Please keep taking the rapid response LFT tests twice a week. Taking a regular test protects you and those you love. You can pick up test kits at pharmacies.

Record the result whether it’s positive or negative. If you get a positive result, isolate and book a PCR test.

Golden Hill Maze


Find your space

Escape the crowds and discover the Island’s beautiful open spaces this summer.

This week our spotlight is on Golden Hill Country Park. It has paths going through woodlands, open grasslands and alongside the historical Golden Hill Fort.

The fort was built on a good vantage point, with spectacular views looking in all directions, particularly south towards Freshwater Bay.

The willow maze is a new feature for 2021 that is popular with families. There is information around the site for those who want to explore the interesting history of the military establishment too!
