Brading Town

Brading is located on the East side of the Isle of Wight a few miles from Ryde, and is one of the Island’s oldest towns.
The town many years ago formed a major port on the Isle of Wight, before the area was fully reclaimed in the late 19th Century, and there are still many signs of its previous history visible today.
Much of the interesting architecture through the heart of the town is original, with some beautiful cottages and buildings on show.

Many of the things to do in Brading are related to the town’s rich history and past.

Explore the pretty Norman church of St Mary’s, to the rear of which stands the charming Old Town Hall.
In the grounds outside the new town hall there is an iron bullring that was historically used to secure a bull whilst it was rather gruesomely baited by dogs as part of a traditional celebration.
On the outskirts of the town the Brading Roman Villa offers good insight into some of the many relics that have been found from the Roman period in the area, and the Villa site sits within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The restored railway station buildings and signal box at Brading Station are also well worth a visit, as their shop and tearoom also houses the Brading tourist information point.
The Brading Downs provide some of the most spectacular views across the Isle of Wight looking out across Culver Down and Sandown Bay, making the area very popular for walking and exploring.

Places to eat in Brading

You'll find a great variety of places to eat in Brading and the surrounding areas. See the list below for a list of yummy food locations, from pubs to cafes and restaurants to takeaways - there are plenty of places to visit for refreshments and a bite to eat!
If you’re staying in or visiting Brading, you’ll want to fill up again after a long day - and Brading has plenty of opportunities to refuel. The town is served by the Island Line railway, with direct connections to Wightlink - allowing for quick access to Brading for a day out and a great excuse to visit this beautiful town to dine out.
Brading is a former sea-port, with boats once making their way to what is now a popular restaurant in Brading – The Bugle Inn. The reclamation of the land was completed more than 120 years ago - leading to Brading being the town it is now. Those who chose to eat at the Bugle Inn have the chance to enjoy wholesome and traditional home cooked foods - which also includes locally sourced produce. The inn is also dog friendly and welcome those who wish to dine at the inn alongside their furry friend - perfect after a day spent walking across the countryside nearby.
Also situated in the centre of Brading is Kynges Well Pub - which offers a great choice of pub food suited to all ages and tastes. Kynges Well is also a great place to sample great local guest ales available on tap, which go perfectly with the homemade meals and must be sampled on a trip to the pub. The food will tickle any taste buds and they also cater for those who need a gluten free diet, or for those who are vegetarian, with meals making up part of a substantial menu.
If you’re looking for something a little different and have an interest in history, you could also visit the cafe at Brading Roman Villa. You’ll be able to enjoy a selection of delicious home cooked cakes, freshly filled baguettes and even sample some of the highly rated locally produced cider. There is also plenty for children to enjoy - with a Wicked Roman lunch bag on offer for those who want something a little different for the young ones.

Loved this cosy little cottage. Thanks for the thoughtful welcome basket.
Granddaughter loved being on holiday. We all had a restful break and enjoyed
exploring the Island.

Lovely little cottage with great character. Cleanliness of high standard. Welcome pack amazing. Even fresh flowers, a stamped post card and stationery . The owner thought of everything.

Great location. Brading village has good pubs. Clean cottage. Nice homely touches. Perfect for couples.

A well presented cottage, plenty big enough for two, in a part of the island we like. Woods and downs in walk-out-of-the-cottage range behind, super beach at Yaverland, complete with body-surfable waves, café and car park, maybe 10 minutes away in the car. Island Line railway for when one is feeling more adventurous - with a half hour service up and down the east coast of the island, running all day. Car parking a five minute walk away, fine. Car park never full. Stairs might be a bit awkward if you have mobility problems. Like bad hips or knees. Newly opened serious gastro place (Heima) a five minute walk away. We had a very good meal there. Several other more modest places. Serious pies from the Bugle. Serious steak and kidney puddings from the chip shop. We have stayed at Brading every year now for six or seven years. Great place for a holiday!

This is a beautiful cottage, very clean and there were nice welcoming touches with doggy biscuits, wine, sweets and mike. The IoW is small so the location is fine. Personally I would like the parking to be closer - rhe car park took me 7 minutes to get to. Also I did not realise it but my wife and myself have to use the bathroom every night, the fact that we had to go down the steep stairs to downstairs was less than ideal.

Lovely cozy, clean, home from home cottage.
Thank you for all the little extras and dog treats, much appreciated.

First Class, Charming, nice little touches and treats.

Thank you for a lovely stay. We had a lovely month here, weather was really nice.
Cottage very clean and tidy. The only thing is we don't wont to go home.

Thank you for a lovely stay. Really appreciated the milk and treats on arrival (especially the dog biscuits!)
Had everything we needed in a fab location, loved Yaverland beach with the dogs.

Smallish 2 bedroom cottage in a good location for exploring the Isle of Wight. Situated in a quiet back road, it's only a short walk to local pubs, cafe, shop, bus stops and train. Good value for money.

We had a lovely stay here, the cottage was very cosy, sadly it was too warm to light the fire or we would have loved to! The welcome goodies are a lovely treat when you arrive, there was also milk in the fridge. The cottage had everything you would need, the kitchen is very well equipped. Wifi too. The location is excellent, very near to the local bus stops also. There are lovely walks in the vicinity of the cottage should you fancy an evening stroll. The chip shop on Brading High Street was lovely.

We had a lovely time staying at this holiday cottage. So much care had been taken to make sure everything we needed was there. The location was very peaceful but with shops nearby and it was easy to get around the island from there. The whole family really liked it from my teenage son who appreciated the wifi to my wife who liked the peaceful village.
