The Visitor Centre was built with aid from the Millennium Commission and has helped to make Ventnor Botanic Garden a hive of activity all year round.
The Gift Shop and The Plantation Room cafe are situated on the top floors of the building, whilst the soon to be open cafe and restaurant is on the lower levels opening up into the Mediterranean Garden.
Extensive work has been taking place over the last few months, transforming the buildings and gardens and hugely improving the visitor experience. Ventnor Botanic Garden is a place to explore and learn. We actively encourage all our visitors to get off the paths and discover something new.
The Visitor Centre has also enabled the garden to expand its educational role by providing a facility where lectures and courses can be held. Two large function rooms, Canna and Echium are available for hire and provide stunning views over the gardens.
