Bonchurch is a beautiful English village near the town of Ventnor on the South East of the Island.
It is one of the best-preserved Victorian villages on the Isle of Wight and was made popular by such Victorian literati as Charles Dickens (where he wrote most of David Copperfield), Lewis Carroll and Alfred Lord Tennyson. The village boasts beautiful imposing Victorian mansions overlooking the sea and pretty stone cottages set in to the hillside. The village has a well known pub, shop and popular cafe. Just beyond the famous pond in the centre of the village is the '101 Steps'. Not for the faint hearted but if you do make it to the top you'll come out at The Pitts which is a road housing some of the most beautiful Victorian mansions including Torwood.
