The Chain Ferry Connecting East & West Cowes
For the past 100 years this bridge has been the most convenient way for pedestrians to commute between East & West Cowes. Without this, it would mean a 10 mile trip around Newport. The bridge today is capable of carrying just about any type of transport with the crossing time being about every 15 minutes. However - during the summer months this time can be considerably exceeded, and especially during our Cowes Week (First Week in August) when the river becomes packed with visiting yachts here to take part in the weeks activities.
