A welcome to the Isle of Wight in Ryde

It's likely that Ryde will be your first taste of the Isle of Wight, if you're heading in from Portsmouth, which is great news if you're a fan of down-to-earth seaside towns with pretty promenades, Victorian terraces and local boutiques. The action is centred on two main drags – the bustling High Street, with its cafes, tandooris and restaurants, and the Esplanade, home to the family attractions that spill out onto the Solent. Aside from swimming pools and beaches, the latter also has some of the most attractive and convenient Ryde holiday rentals of all.

Things to do

Families assemble in Ryde

Ryde has rides… just head to the Robin Hill Country Park, a little to the south-west. It's one of the Isle of Wight's premier family attractions, where swinging pirate ships converge on zigzagging toboggans. Not only will the adrenaline flow, but there are chances to learn all about falconry and to hit the nature trails – past babbling rivers and woodlands teeming with squirrels – which adds a whole extra dimension. The Amazon World Zoo Park is another hotspot, especially if you're into glimpses of long-snouted anteaters and South American sloths.


Ryde – a base for explorations

Ryde is a fantastic place to settle in and plan your adventures across the island. Once the bags are dropped and you're cosy in a Ryde holiday rental, you can head out to stroll the town's salt-washed Esplanade with its skating rinks and bowling alleys. Alternatively, hop in the car and the grand Italian Renaissance opulence of Osborne House – once the summer home of Queen Victoria – awaits. A ride on the old London Underground trains that buzz up and down the tracks of the electric railway can also bring you to the arcade piers of Shanklin, a town of enticing beaches and thatched-roof pubs.


Ryde gets rainy and warm

Surrounded by seas and set on the far southern side of England, Ryde – and the Isle of Wight generally – gets warm summers and wet and rainy winters. That's why most people seek out Ryde holiday rentals for the spring or summer seasons. They start in April and May, when the days are getting dry enough to hit the coastal walks and the country parks. Then comes the summer – running from June to August. That's high time for Ryde holiday rentals on the Esplanade, offering beach-worthy temperatures in the 20s and the driest days of all.

Natural features

A Ryde to the beaches

Facing across the Solent, directly opposite the city of Portsmouth, Ryde is the natural place for ferries to alight. Its Victorian-era pier pokes into the waters of the English Channel, marking the start of a long beachfront – sometimes dotted with rocks, but mostly sandy – that runs all the way down the Esplanade. A big tidal difference means it's better for walking than sunbathing, but the more famous resort town of Sandown isn't too far away, with its yellow stretches of sand and clear seas. Inland, the Robin Hill Country Park has wooded valleys, green fields and local wildlife aplenty.
