About the Heritage Centre

Ventnor Heritage Centre is the home of Ventnor & District Local History Society, established in 1980 to collect, record and preserve the history of our area. 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.

Address: 11 Spring Hill, Ventnor, PO38 1PE
email: info@ventnorheritage.org.uk

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.

The Globe Inn

The Globe Inn stood at 63-67  Ventnor High Street, on part of the site that is now the Central Car Park.  It dated from at least the 1840s, and there is mention of Chartists meeting in a large room at the hotel at about that time. Badly damaged in a 'hit and run' bombing raid in 1942,  it was demolished in 1943.
