Ventnor, Isle of Wight
On the southern tip of the Island and sheltered by cliffs, Ventnor often benefits from a mild climate. The beach, a mixture of sand and fine shingle, is well supported by pubs, cafes, amusements and a paddling pool.
A walk along the prom will lead to Bonchurch, a well preserved Victorian village. The Botanic Gardens have a modern visitor centre and Ventnor Park, slightly inland, provides a putting green and more beautiful gardens.
Ventnor's Local Attractions
See a variety of dramatic flying displays over the lovely Appuldurcombe Valley throughout the summer months, including Eagles, Vultures, Hawks, Kites, Owls and Falcons. Take a leisurely walk around the centre and view some stunning species in their aviaries or on the weathering lawn.
