Places to eat & drink in Ventnor.

The mild winters of this southerly facing resort helped turn this pretty, hillside fishing village into a fashionable health spa during the Victorian hey-day. Today it is one of the Isle of Wight's most popular destinations, offering rugged scenery, steep, cliff-side terraces and an undercliff which boasts a Mediterranean-style micro-climate.

Just out of the town are botanic gardens containing numerous sub-tropical plants, while also nearby is St Boniface Down, the highest point on the island at 787ft, which has Bronze Age burial mounds in the form of earthen or rubble mounds.

At Bonchurch, the old church is 1,000 years old. The poet Algernon Swinburne (1837-1909) was christened here and Dickens, Keats and Tennyson were often to be seen in the congregation.
