Chocolate Box Village

Bonchurch is a chocolate-box village sitting at the foot of very steep cliffs on a stable landslip and was home to a prehistoric race of peoples, Romans, Saxons and Normans, with one of the churches reported to have been present since the 9th century. It is less than a mile from the Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor.

Some of Bonchurch's most famous residents include Charles Dickens, who wrote part of David Copperfield whilst staying locally, and the poet Algernon Swinburne who lived at East Dene, a large house alternately used as a convent, family home, hotel and outdoor education centre.
