The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is situated approximately 3 miles off the English Southern Coastline. It is known for its breathtaking scenery with much of the Island being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island first became popular as a holiday destination during Victorian times and its unique charm still entices over 2.5 million visitors each year. It is quite easy to appreciate why the Island attracts so many, with its scenic coastline, award winning golden beaches, charming little villages and temperate climate – in fact the Island can boast more hours of sunshine than most other destinations in Britain. For the more energetic, the Island offers over 500 miles of maintained footpaths which makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists alike. The Island's towns offer a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including many 'High Street' names together with popular cafes, bars and restaurants - some even being awarded the 'Michelin Star'. All in all the Island is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and with activities for all interests.
Ryde was once a thriving Victorian town, evidence of which can still be seen in much of its central and seafront architecture. It is the largest of all the Island's towns and has been named "The gateway to the Island". It has been a favourite holiday destination since the days when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert built Osborne House. Ryde is very well known for its lovely beaches and expansive sands, which are revealed during low tide. This is the reason for Ryde Pier, the oldest and fourth longest pier in Britain, being half a mile in length and a listed structure. There is no shortage of things to do, which include ten pin bowling, ice skating, swimming pool, children's playground and marina. There is also an imposing boating lake, which is home to many ducks and swans. A pleasant walk along the Esplanade will take you to Appley Park and beach. Continue along the sea wall and you will find Puckpool Park, once a military coastal defence. It is now an Island attraction, with enjoyable walks, childrens playground, tennis courts and crazy golf. There is also a cafe - just the place for a cup of tea before you stroll back to Ryde. For those who like to shop, you will find many different kinds of shops within Ryde, including the Royal Victoria Arcade. Here you will find 14 different little shops where you can find all sorts of unusual things - great for gifts! You will also find many inviting cafes, restaurants and bars. Lastly, Ryde also offers great transport links to the rest of the Island. There is a main bus station on the Esplanade together with a train service which operates from Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin. Ex-London underground trains operate this route, which also stop at Smallbrook Station. From here you can catch one of the steam trains from Havenstreet and enjoy a travel back in time!
