Shanklin on the Isle of Wight is a resort of great charm whose popular seaside attractions include a sandy beach, with excellent swimming and sunbathing opportunities.

A cliff lift links the town with the Esplanade and a road train operates between the seafront, town centre and the Old Village. A stroll along Shanklin’s High Street and Regent Street will reveal a range of cafes, restaurants and individually owned shops, while the thatched cottages of the Old Village offer the visitor a range of tea rooms and unique gift shops.
