Brading is a charming little hamlet nestled on a slope below Brading Down in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Brading is one of the island’s oldest cities, said to have been created by King Alfred in the 7th century. Its history dates back thousands of years before the Iron Age.
With rolling green hills falling down to the sea, spectacular views from Brading Down, various footpaths and bridleways, and a variety of unusual animals, including the birds at the Brading Marshes RSPB Reserve, the surrounding countryside is as much of a feature.
Brading is one of the Island’s undiscovered gems, thanks to its mix of heritage and environment in a thriving community, as well as some excellent local cuisine.
