The village itself lies at the head of the tidal Wootton Creek and over the last 100 years it has grown from a tiny hamlet of 70 people to almost 4000. The area is surrounded with several areas of special scientific interest in which a wide variety of wildlife can be seen.
In 1969 the village was home to the first major Isle of Wight pop concert; around 150,000 people came to see Bob Dylan.
Wootton Bridge is near the Wightlink ferry terminal at Fishbourne. Ferries depart from Portsmouth to Fishbourne.
- The old Millpond (as you approach the village from Ryde). Supports many types of sea birds and is a nice spot to sit and relax.
