Places to visit around the Kynges Well
Brading is located on the East side of the Isle of Wight, a short distance from Ryde, and is one of the Island’s oldest towns.
In years past the town was 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.
Things To Do in Brading
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.
