Visit Ryde and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Ryde, Isle of Wight, the island's chief entry port, is 4½ miles across the roadstead of Spithead from Portsmouth on the mainland, with which it is connected by British Rail ferries and hovercraft. The town stands on steep hills and the area is well wooded. The parish church, All Saints', has the tallest spire of the Ryde skyline and it is visible for miles around.
Ryde is the island's largest holiday resort. The pier, nearly ½ miles long, the Esplanade and the Parade Gardens edge a sandy beach that stretches for 7 miles round to Sea-view at Nettlestone Point. Ryde has an array of social and sporting clubs, and a special feature is the yearly carnival and fair held at the beginning of September.
