Millions of visitors have passed through the stunning tree-lined gorge, gazing at its breath-taking natural beauty…wandered through and marvelled at its magnificent beauty.
There are few places on the Isle of Wight, let alone England, that can boast such a tranquil and picturesque location. The gates to this gorgeous, historical place opened in 1817, making it the longest established attraction on the whole of the Isle of Wight.
The mesmerising tree lined Chine cuts its way from Shanklin Old Village to the sandy beach and Esplanade far below and has always been a magnet for visitors. Shanklin Chine boasts many famous visitors who have stopped to paint, draw and write about the natural beauty it beholds.
