The Ryde Castle Hotel Ryde Isle of Wight, was originally a large and spacious Victorian family home, overlooking Ryde Esplanade and Harbour on the Isle of Wight with stunning views across the Solent. This majestic building which was to become the Ryde Castle Hotel 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 the building was used as a wartime hospital and during World War II it was an Army HQ. Rumours say there is a friendly spirit, although playful moving of objects and some sightings is all we can offer with any certainty.
