Ryde Guide

The town of Ryde is located on the north east coast of the Isle of Wight, which is an island located off the south coast of the English mainland. The towns of Upper Ryde and Lower Ryde grew during the 19th century but then merged. Ryde is known for its sandy beaches which are revealed at low tide, which make the town's pier necessary in order to accommodate the ferry service operating from the town. It is the fourth longest pier in the United Kingdom and is a listed structure. Clearly visible from the see are the two church spires of All Saints' and Holy Trinity churches. The spire of All Saints Church stands at 177 feet and the church was built in 1872 by George Gilbert Scott. Holy Trinity Church was completed in 1845 and was designed by Thomas Hellyer. There are only a few large open spaces in Ryde beyond the esplanade, but includes Appley Park, Puckpool Park, Vernon Square, Simon Street Recreation Ground, St. John's Park, Salter Road Recreation Ground and Oakfield Football Club.

From Ryde harbour their is a hovercraft service to Southsea and a catamaran service to Portsmouth Harbour which then connects with both Island Line trains and mainland trains to London Waterloo.


Portsmouth Harbour Guide

The city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England in the county of Hampshire. The city, which lies on the English Channel coast, has a long and illustrious maritime history and has connections with the Royal Navy that goes back centuries. The city was also one of the world's greatest shipbuilding centres and constructed the world's first ever dry dock in the 15th century, which is still in use today. The city is still an important base for the Royal Navy and is home to a number of important historical ships including the crowning glory of Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory.

Portsmouth was significantly bombed during the Second World War because of its strategic importance, and as a result the city is a mix of old and new buildings with some of the most historic areas being the Hard and the Point. The nearby suburb of Southsea is a popular destination for families and has a lovely stretch of beach, two piers and a good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and a theme park at Clarence Pier.

Ferry services from the city's port depart to Le Havre, Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, St Malo, St Helier, St Peter Port and Ryde.
