  • Shanklin Old Village

    Shanklin Old Village has some beautiful old pubs and restaurants. Many of the buildings are thatched and it’s well worth checking out places like The Crab, The Village Inn and Pencil Cottage.

  • Shanklin Chine

    This is a historic gorge {or chine} which runs from upper Shanklin Old Village to the lower Shanklin beach. Waterfalls and unique plants populate this romantic and beautiful ravine. After a gentle descent, the Chine emerges by the Fisherman’s Cottage Pub. What could be better?

  • Shanklin Beach

    Broad, welcoming and sun-drenched, Shanklin Beach stretches almost a mile from Luccombe to Sandown. Lined with bars, restaurants and cafes along the Esplanade, it is the perfect place to relax. And so you don’t have to go the long way round, there’s a lift just three minutes walk from the Claremont Guest House.
