Shop 1, 94 High Street,
Ventnor, Isle of Wight
On the Isle of Wight
Coming into Ventnor from Whitwell, Wroxall or Shanklin (via car or bus)
I am based in Ventnor, so once you have made your way to the south of the island via, Whitwell, Wroxall or Shanklin head towards the town. Once on the one way system around the town I am on the corner as the High street turns into Victoria street. Go up the High street past Tesco Express, the Mandarin Chinese takeaway and I am next to The Old Clock Shop. If you get as far as the Spar, then you have gone past me.
-There is a car park opposite Tesco Express.
If coming from Shanklin past the library you will see BrainBodySense directly in front of you as you head down the High street onto Victoria Street.
If you have come into Ventnor on the bus, get off at Boots the chemist and walk cross the road and walk to the left. Pass Tesco Express on your right and keep walking, go past the Mandarin Chinese takeaway, (do not go up the hill) continue walking round and I am just past the clock shop.
