Location

Shanklin boasts one of the busiest Esplanades on the island, supported by many hotels, bars, restaurants, and leisure facilities. Significant recent investment has been put into improving recreational facilities with a recently built ‘pitch and putt’ as well as indoor activity facilities for children. The original building is believed to date back to 1830 and was reputedly patronised providing inspiration to anthropologist Charles Darwin, who was quoted as saying “this is the nicest seaside place that I have ever seen”. Shanklin is the Island's major town on the south coast and serves as a day-to-day needs centre, particularly for the Sandown, Shanklin Lake conurbation, which wrap around Sandown Bay. The sandy beaches and leisure offer of the area ensure high numbers of visitors and tourists, particularly in the Summer season, boosting the local population of around 19,500. It also has a railway station which goes through to Lake, Sandown, Brading and Ryde Pier Head to link up with Wightlink’s fast passenger ferries to Portsmouth Harbour and trains onwards to London Waterloo and Gatwick.
