Brading marsh

Walk Description

This beautiful walk to Bembridge on the coast, through the Brading Marshes Nature Reserve surrounding the River Yar, has options to suit all walkers.

The shortest is a 3 mile linear walk. The return options are a bus  to Ryde, Sandown or Shanklin.

Refreshments at the Village Inn or Bembridge Windmill.

The longer version is a 6 mile return walk to Bembridge. This returns to same way that you travel there. However, walking a path in the opposite direction is never the same.  Walking through the marsh at two different times of day will no doubt provide a greater opportunity to see more wildlife.
