Ryde & CowesINCLUDED Visitor DestinationThe resort of Ryde is a welcoming seaside town on the north east coast of the Isle of Wight. Ryde's beaches have soft sand and plenty of space particularly at low tide, and the Pier, at nearly half a mile, is one of the oldest and longest piers in the country. Next to the pier is the hovercraft terminal with links to the mainland in less than 10 minutes. Along the Esplanade you will find colourful flowerbeds, ten-pin bowling, marina, bowling greens and a small fun fair. The bustling main street has lots of unique shops and eateries flowing downhill to the seafront, making this an ideal visit for everyone.
Cowes, famed for its professional sailing, stunning Victorian architecture and vibrant festival atmosphere is one of the most popular towns on the Isle of Wight to visit year-round. There are stunning sea views over the Solent to the mainland beyond. Find a cosy spot to sit and watch the world go by with a hot chocolate...
