Ventnor railway station was the terminus of the Isle of Wight Railway line from Ryde.

The station lay on a ledge immediately outside a long tunnel. Because of lack of space, a Turntable was used to allow steam engines to runaround their trains. In later years this was replaced by a three way switch. The various tracks merged just before the tunnel and the locomotives had to enter the tunnel during their runround manoeuvres.

The station had one side platform connected to the station buildings plus one narrow island platform. Unusually, there was only one track between the side platform and the island platform. Further away from the station buildings were goods sidings which mainly served coal merchants who operated from caves in the chalk sides of the station cutting.

This station is not to confused with Ventnor West railway station.
