Ventnor Botanic Gardens
All about: Ventnor Botanic Gardens
The gardens have their own microclimate as they are protected from the northerly wind by the chalk downs. Therefore the gardens are renowned for their collection of subtropical plants grown outdoors. It is 22 acres of peace and tranquillity, a must for any keen gardener. There is a gift shop and cafe attached to the gardens and you can also access Steephill Cove from here.
