Shanklin is beautifully situated on the cliffs bordering the South East coast of the Isle of Wight and is sheltered to the west by high-lying downs. The town is split with the old village lying on the cliff top and the new village nestled close to the sea. The two are connected by a cliff lift.


Shanklin's beach, surrounded by cliffs and a natural suntrap, is safe for bathing and boasts cleanliness awards for both its sand and waters. There are many amusements, restaurants and pubs, as well as water sports facilities to be found in the immediate vicinity. Gardens in Shanklin are a delight to visit. Tower Gardens and Rylstone Gardens run alongside the Chine, or take a stroll in the Big Mead, adjacent to historic St. Blasius Church, or along the spectacular coastal paths to Sandown or Bonchurch.


Shanklin is a town of great character and charm, with many interesting small shops and a variety of Victorian architecture. Shanklin Old Village is a perennial attraction where most of the picturesque cottages are clustered around the thatched Crab Inn. Within walking distance is Shanklin’s famous Chine, a dramatic fissure in the rock where a 45ft waterfall cascades through boulders and ferns to the shore.
