Shanklin, The Isle of Wight
Shanklin offers a great range of activities, whether it is taking a stroll along the golden, sandy, blue flag beaches, wandering through the town centre with its many shops, discovering the beauty and enchantment of Shanklin Chine, sitting on the pretty Esplanade and watching the world go by, playing crazy golf or even partaking in one of the many water sports on offer – Shanklin has it all!
The beauty of Shanklin is that whatever you choose to do here, it is never far away and every effort has been made to ensure nowhere is out of bounds. Take the Cliff Lift down to the beach or enjoy a journey on the Shanklin Steamer (Summer season only), a quaint land train running between Shanklin and Sandown.
After enjoying your evening meal at one of our popular hotels, do you fancy an evening stroll? Then it has to be Shanklin Chine – the Isle of Wight’s oldest visitor attraction, first opened in 1817. Illuminated after dusk you can experience the unique tranquillity of the winding woodland – a magical place filled with rare plants, wildlife and enchanting waterfalls.
And on a coach holiday with National Holidays, Shanklin can just be the start of your experience of the beautiful Isle of Wight, as we take you on coach excursions to explore the best of this stunning Island.
