Tips from locals
Look out for drop in yoga classes or just visit the gardens for a relaxing look around. Good cafe and a selection of island favourite plants to buy
Highly recommend the Saturday morning yoga at the Botanic Garden for £8 per person.
The Plantation Room Cafe:- Designed to resemble a library, this relaxing cafe, a remaining building from the old chest hospital serves coffee and cakes, loose leaf tea, fine wines and light lunches. Warmer months you can sit on the wooden terrace overlooking the Palm and Medicinal Gardens…
Ventnor's micro-climate facilitates plants that won't grow anywhere else in the UK. Well worth a visit.
Breathtaking gardens and an Amazonian-like greenhouse with giant waterlillies. A must see for plant and nature lovers.
