"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

St Helens

St Helens is a village and civil parish located on the eastern side of the Isle of Wight. The village is based around village greens. This is claimed to be the largest in England but some say the village green is the second largest. The greens are often used for cricket matches during the summer and football in the winter and also include a children's playground. The local pub is the Vine. The village also has two restaurants, Ganders on the upper side of the green and St Helens Restaurant on the south.

The village is a short distance from the coast, with about a ten-minute walk to St Helens Duver, which was once the location of the island's first golf course. It is now a popular beach for tourists during the summer season and is protected by the National Trust.

It is linked to other parts of the island by Southern Vectis bus route 8 serving Ryde, Bembridge, Sandown and Newport including intermediate villages.
