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.
You can enter via the The Gift Shop and The Plantation Room Cafe, which are situated on the top floors of the building and are both easily accessed from the Car Park. The edulis restaurant is on the lower level opening up into the Mediterranean Garden.
Ventnor Botanic Garden is a place to explore and learn. We actively encourage all our visitors to get off the paths (and on the grass) to 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. To find out more click here.
