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.
