Advertise with the Isle of Wight Observer

The Isle of Wight Observer is a free weekly newspaper distributed across the Isle of Wight. We are a small dedicated team who all live locally and have a passion and commitment to produce a first class product.

We have spent a great deal of time asking Islanders want from their local paper. In conjunction with our newspaper we have a comprehensive website which will bring you the latest news, events, sport and features, along with advertising from local companies and job vacancies from across the Island.
