Alum Bay

  • 5 resources

Alum Bay is the location of a classic sequence of upper Paleocene and Eocene beds of soft sands and clays. The strata in the main section of the bay are near vertical and the sands are coloured due to oxidised iron compounds formed under different conditions. A stunning view of the Needles rock formation is available from Alum Bay, along with optional boat trips from the pier.

Such is the variety of colour in the sands that they were used in Victorian times for marmotinto, a popular artform.

A living, working museum with a heritage railway passing through 5.5 miles of unspoilt countryside. The visitor can expect to step back in time to a bygone age. The adjacent, modern Train Story exhibition presents a timeline of the era of steam with lots of interpretative exhibits and hands-on activities.

Details

Robin Hill Country Park

  • 76 resources

The park's 88 acres give plenty of room for your party to run free and let off some steam, and with its big mix of features and attractions, it makes a whole day out and excellent value for money. It's no wonder nearly 16,000 school pupils come through our gates each year to enjoy the park.

Details

St Lawrence Undercliff

  • 6 resources

The largest urban landslide complex in northern Europe, The Undercliff stretches from Niton to Bonchurch and its sheltered south facing location gives rise to a microclimate considerably warmer than elsewhere on the Island.

Still prone to landslips and subsidence this is an ideal location to study coastal erosion.

Details

The Model Village, Godshill

  • 50 resources

Meticulously and humorously crafted scale models of the local area.

Lying underneath St Boniface Down (241m) and built on steep slopes leading down to the sea, Ventnor's sheltered location results in more sunny days and fewer frosts than most of the UK.

Famously a site of World War 2 radar stations. The largest British colony of wall lizards live in walls throughout the town.

Details

Ventnor Botanic Garden

One of the great gardens of Britain, basking in a subtropical microclimate typically 5 degrees warmer than anywhere else in the UK.

Visitors can expect a Mediterranean-style climate with lots of unprotected sub tropical plants growing outdoors, shown in representations of the world's geographical regions. Look out for the wall lizards!
