‘Brading, steeped in history and beauty’

The ancient, town of Brading is steeped in history and the old port that began life as a Roman seaport some 2,000 years ago, and was active until the 16th century when ships would lay alongside at the quay behind the Bugle Inn, is now a seaport with no access to the sea.

The Brading of today stands on a hillside below Brading Down on the western bank of the River Yar, to the east of the Isle of Wight. Enveloped within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this small rural town has a wealth of countryside walks, a wide range of attractions, including museums and historic houses and a fine selection of country pubs and places to stay.
