The Sugar Store at Shepards Marina, on Medina Road in Cowes, took part in the Isle of Wight Classic Buses, Beer and Walks Weekend 2018.
Enhancing the Cowes visitor experience with a brewery artefacts exhibition and local historic displays, is the old Sugar Store at Shepards Wharf, now owned by Cowes Harbour Commission and run as an Events Centre and also one of the official venues for the world famous Cowes Week Regatta. Founded as a commercial wharf in the 18th century by the Shepard family, it was the only legal quay on the Island for landing foreign goods. The Sugar Store Warehouse gained its name at that time from the large amounts of sugar delivered to the Island by British Road Services barges and continued to safeguard the Island’s sweet tooth into the times of the sugar shortage in 1974.
