Covid-19 Update

We regret that due to the current situation Ventnor Heritage Museum is now closed to the public until at least the end of June. Society meetings are also suspended until further notice.  However our usual Society work continues ‘behind the scenes’ and online and we can be contacted as usual on info@ventnorheritage.org.uk or via our Ventnor & District Heritage Facebook Group.

The Heritage Centre itself was established in 1987,  providing space for a museum,  exhibitions and displays, as well as housing our Archive and Research Room.  Our website enables us to share articles, stories and information more widely – please use the search  box at the top of this page to explore our pages.

If  you live locally and enjoy local  history you might want to join the Society or  become one of our team of volunteers who run and manage the Ventnor Heritage Centre – we would be very pleased to see you.

You can also join the conversation on our Ventnor & District Heritage Group on Facebook.

Ventnor Bay in the 1890s

The spectacular sight of Ventnor's ascending terraces in the early 1890s, as viewed from the pierhead. Bathing machines are lined up along the water's edge for this was a time when it was forbidden to enter the sea any other way. Machines were hired along with an attendant and a costume, the ladies segregated at some distance from the gentlemen.
