Overlooking Ryde Esplanade and Harbour with views across the Solent, Ryde Castle is claimed to have been commissioned by Henry VIII to defend the Spithead, Southampton Water and the Solent from the invasion by the Spanish Armada during his daughter´s reign. During World War I, Ryde Castle was used as a wartime hospital and during World War II it was an Army HQ. Rumours say there is a friendly spirit within the building, although playful moving of objects and some sightings is all we can offer with any certainty.
Of the 18 comfortable bedrooms, some have four-poster beds and most have fantastic sea views. Functions The staff at the Ryde Castle are highly experienced at catering for conferences, weddings and functions and the fully equipped Tudor Room can accommodate up to 200 people. Brasserie Offering a delicious a la carte menu as well as an extensive wine list, this delightful candle-lit experience can only be topped by the stunning sea views.
Serving both pre and after dinner drinks as well as less formal dining.
