Bembridge Heritage Centre
Isle of Wight
The Bembridge Heritage Society
The Centre was once part of the Village School and is located at the rear of what is now the library in the old part of the village.
Fascinating displays cover vast swathes of Bembridge’s early history, not only in photographs, paintings, maps and written descriptions but also through the many artefacts and medals on display donated by the local community.
There are some cool scale models to interest kids like the long closed Bembridge Railway Station and a real, fully restored PLUTO pump (that’s Pipe Line Under the Ocean to us!) is showcased with the impressive story of the famous PLUTO project alongside it in accessible format Great as an educational stop for kids doing industrialization at school.
Their reams of local information are not only about the village itself but of wider industrial and archaeological interest within the Parish like the imposing Bembridge Fort, so with a bit of extra studying you can winkle out the history of your holiday’s hot spots!

It may be worth checking out Bembridge Heritage Centre's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Bembridge Heritage Centre before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
