The Jetty

This little cove is quite beautiful and surrounded by woodland. When the tide goes out you can see the relics of an old wooden jetty popping up and on a clear day you have a good view of Portsmouth with a constant stream of passing ships from all over the world.

Royal York Hotel, Ryde

At one time the Art Deco stylings of this abandoned hotel would have been the height of fashion – but now the building stands as a crumbling monument
to another era.

Built in 1938, the deserted Royal York Hotel in Ryde, Isle of Wight quickly became a popular destination for high-society holiday-makers but was forced to close in 2006 due to a dwindling number of guests. Today the hotel stands ruined and abandoned, but retaining the same period features that made it popular.
