Sandown first developed as a fashionable resort in Victorian times when it was visited by, amongst others, Lewis Carroll, Charles Darwin, George Eliot and Alfred Tennyson. Today it remains popular, offering a wealth of entertainment and easy access to the remarkable beauty of the rest of the island. The resort boasts long sandy beaches safe for bathing, excellent for water sports and boating and the pier, which is directly opposite our hotel, is popular with visitors.

Other attractions include the award-winning Big Cat Sanctuary and the superb Roman Villa in nearby Brading. In the summer months there are regular markets on both Sunday and Monday to supplement Sandown’s shops, cafés and restaurants.

Sandown is surrounded by a varied landscape of outstanding beauty. In addition to the downs found at its centre, the island ranges from woodland, farmland and wetland to majestic cliffs and deep chines, so that visitors are confronted by ever changing views and terrain. Indeed, Sandown itself is part of the Tennyson Heritage Coast, which stretches from the chalk cliffs of Freshwater Bay to the spectacular 'Needles' rocks - which once joined the island to the mainland - and the multi-coloured sandstone of Alum Bay.

Apart from the island’s famous natural attributes, there are over fifty absorbing attractions to be found, including ancient castles, medieval manor houses, Roman remains and fascinating animal and bird parks.


Sandown boasts a clean, safe and extensive beach with miles of golden sands. Its esplanades and seawall walks stretch from Yaverland southwards through Lake to Shanklin Chine. Its gardens are colourful and well kept. These include Los Altos, Sandham Grounds and the delightful clifftop garden at Ferncliff.


Regular markets take place on Sunday and Monday in summer to supplement Sandown's shops, cafes and restaurants.
