Holiday Properties To Let In Ryde Isle of Wight
Ryde is just a short sea crossing from Portsmouth or Southsea. With the construction of the pier, in 1814, and the establishment of a regular ferry service in 1825, the town became an elegant Victorian seaside resort.
Ryde’s main attraction is its miles of glorious golden sand and shallow coastal waters that extend all the way around the coast to Springvale and Seaview. The tide goes out a long way, leaving firm sand ideal for beach games. The Esplanade has a marina, beautiful gardens and activities for all the family, such as bowling green, children’s amusement park, ice rink, tenpin bowling, nightclub, boating lake, swimming pool with retractable roof and the dotto train. Stroll along the sea wall to Puckpool Park, with café, tennis and children’s play park.
Union Street and the long High Street beyond are packed with interesting shops, pubs and restaurants Collectors will be fascinated by the many antique and bric-a-brac shops in the Upper High Street and the Victoria Arcade in Union Street, with its tiny boutiques, curio shops, cafe and cellar flea market.
