Godshill is the quintessential English Village, and boasts some of the oldest architecture on the Isle of Wight. With its delightful medieval church, charming thatched-roofed cottages and a winding main-street lined with traditional tearooms, Godshill is as picturesque as it is popular. It is also known for being the site of the first ever Isle of Wight Festival, which took place at Ford Farm in 1968 – now 50 years ago!

Things To Do

Whatever your interests there are plenty of things to do during your visit. Along with its collection of traditional tearooms the village contains an interesting range of shops offering local crafts and produce, such as ciders, pickles, mustards and biscuits. Godshill also has a very popular and highly detailed model village. The medieval All Saints Church (which gave the village its name!) overlooks the village from the hill and is a short but steep climb up either the steps or Church Hollow road.
