Ventnor is a Victorian seaside resort built into the steep slopes and cliffs of St Boniface Down, the highest point on the Isle of Wight. Roads zig-zag down to the sea past terraces planted with sub-tropical plants, a feature of this very sunny micro-climate.
The south-facing seafront is sheltered by cliffs and boasts a lovely sand and shingle beach with pubs, cafes, amusements, paddling pool and car park.
