Isle Of Wight: Shanklin
9 Day Coach Holiday
Situated off the south coast of England, the enchanting Isle of Wight has seafront promenades and golden sands with all the fun of the seaside as well as pretty parks, a sweeping coastline and quaint thatch-roofed villages. Dinosaur remains can be found in places like Compton Bay and the island has a museum exhibiting over a thousand relics taking visitors from the Ice Age to the recent past. Perhaps uncover a millennia of history at Carisbrooke Castle, a motte and bailey fortress where Charles I was imprisoned prior to his trial. Our holiday is based in Shanklin, a charming Victorian town and popular resort set against a dramatic backdrop of sandstone cliffs with a wide sandy beach sprinkled with colourful beach huts. The bustling esplanade is jam-packed with seaside amusements and cafés. Alternatively, a quieter time can be enjoyed in leafy Rylstone Gardens or at the unique Shanklin Chine - a stunning gorge with rare plants and a cascading waterfall. Hop aboard the cliff lift to get to the enchanting Old Village with its lovely stone cottages.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Nestling in a beautiful bay on the southern coast of the island, Sandown has a long stretch of sandy beach and a broad seafront that’s just perfect for a stroll. You’ll find a pleasure pier packed with traditional amusements, crazy golf and bowling as well as numerous cafés and gift shops.
A half day visit to traditional Ryde where you’ll find a sweeping sandy beach, a pleasant esplanade and a pleasure pier.
“It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot.” So said Queen Victoria on her first visit to this opulent seaside palace set amidst truly sumptuous gardens.
