As part of Wild About Wight's Down to the Coast project, we are holding a series of guided heritage walks in towns of the East Wight over the next six months.

The walks will be run in conjunction with heritage centres and historical societies, and be led by local experts. The walks will celebrate the unique heritage of each town, highlighting the architecture, landmarks and built heritage of the area.

The first of these is a walk around this quirky Victorian town, well known for its health-giving micro-climate and its many hills! The walk will begin at Ventnor Heritage Centre at the bottom of Spring Hill. Local historian, Richard Downing will lead the walk, which will last approximately 1.5 hours and cover a distance of 2 miles with some inclines. The walk will also finish at the Heritage Centre, and the Centre will be open with free entry for any participants who want to go in and browse the very interesting exhibits.

If the weather is inclement, the event will still go ahead, but will be replaced by a talk inside the museum in the dry.

The walk is FREE to participants, but numbers are limited, so booking is essential. For more information on either of these walks and to book, please contact [email protected] or call 07399 562928.
