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 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.
BEACH & GARDENS
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.
