The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is just 23 miles by 13 miles and is located just off the south coast of mainland UK with ferry crossings from Southampton, Portsmouth and Lymington. Known as the Garden Isle because of its stunning natural beauty, the Isle of Wight is the perfect UK destination for holidays and tourists, catering for all age groups.

Due to the warmer climate that The Isle of Wight enjoys, being gently warmed by the Gulf Stream, the Island is often warmer than the rest of Mainland UK. It also helps to make The Isle of Wight a year round destination. The Island in autumn and the winter months is peaceful and breathtaking. Whilst in spring you can walk through woodland carpeted with Bluebells.

The Isle of Wight offers a holiday for everyone all year round. Walkers and cyclists visit the Island to enjoy over 500 miles of footpaths and bridleways and many visitor attractions, as well as the stunning views, countless pubs and the feeling of freedom.


The coastal resort of Shanklin is located at the south east corner of the Island at the southern most tip of Sandown Bay. The town is well served by the railway, which connects to the high speed ferry terminal at the top of Ryde Pier, allowing easy access to the mainland and London. There are also regular bus services to the Islands principal towns.

Shanklin has long been a location for family holidays, with a safe sandy beach and clear waters. The bay is sheltered from the prevailing wind by Dunnose Point, which is a stunning backdrop, with the tall cliffs of Luccombe and St. Boniface Downs beyond. Looking out to The English Channel across The Bay, views extend around to the white cliffs of Culver and Bembridge Downs. By the beach there is crazy golf, children's amusements and car parking. A lift provides easy access to the cliff tops, where the views are even more spectacular, so the less energetic or disabled people don't have to climb the steps. The seafront is a real attraction for visitors to the town, with a wealth of eating establishments. There is a bus service which provides a regular service through the summer months to the town centre and Old Village.

Shanklin is most famed for its good weather and the pretty Old Village, which is located on the south side of the town, towards Ventnor and Bonchurch. The village is extremely pretty and most tourists head to the area for the thatched cottages, quaint shops and old fashioned tea rooms, which not only offer cream teas, but sea food specialities and attractive surroundings. In the heart of The Old Village are several pubs which are attractive and provide good food and a great venue for a lively evening. Just past the entrance to The Crab Inn is the start of Shanklin Chine, a deep gorge carved out by a stream, which is a restful and picturesque place to spend the morning or afternoon. In the evening the waterfalls and woodland are illuminated, giving the gardens a totally different aspect and atmosphere.
