  • Address: Shanklin, South East England, United Kingdom, England
Shanklin is a seaside resort town on the Isle of Wight in southeast England. The town is on the east side of the island and includes a long stretch of sandy beach. This is a popular place for swimming, sunbathing, boating, and other water activities. Other activities in Shanklin include an amusement arcade, a crazy golf course, and a children's play area. There are plenty of hotels, restaurants, cafes, and pubs in the area as well. On High Street and Regent Street, you can go shopping for souvenirs, clothing, and anything you may have forgotten for your beach trip. 

The Old Village is a nice area for a stroll through thatched cottages that house tea rooms and unique gift shops.

It covers an area of three acres and is home to around 150 varieties of plants and at least 50 species of moss and liverworts. There is also a pond and an aviary.
