Ventnor Botanic Gardens, Isle of Wight

Located on the southern tip of the Isle of Wight the Botanic Garden has exotic plants, trees, flowers and shrubs from around the world displayed in a series of temperate and sub-tropical gardens. It has recently been renovated and developed and is a wonderful and inspiring garden to visit.

On Saturday 28th July, we will take the train from Brighton, and pick up the ferry across the water, and then taxi to Ventnor. Irene Fletcher, the education officer, will guide us round the gardens. She is an engaging and knowledgeable host and the gardens are stunning.

There will be free time to wander along the marvellous cliff walk to Ventnor where we will meet at the Spyglass Inn for supper.

The cost of £70 includes all travel (trains, ferry and taxi), guided tour round the gardens and the pub supper.

Leaving Brighton 8.30 am Return 10.00 pm. For more information visit email
