village in the United Kingdom

Wootton Bridge lies on the northeast coast of the Isle of Wight, and is situated almost midway between the island’s historical capital of Newport and the Victorian gateway of Ryde.


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.
