Rylstone Gardens 1



Rylstone Gardens is a gem and is very easily missed thanks to it's hidden and high location and yet it is very near to Shanklin Old Village.  It is possible to drop someone off here but there are no car parks and I seem to remember the very narrow lane that does go near the area has no or very limited parking on it. 

So access is really by walking and there are a few different ways of seeing this area, for details see here.


Rylstone Manor House and park as well as two tea rooms are here in this location with a view. There are sometimes brass bands playing in summer evenings in the bandstand.

Easy access to Shanklin South beach by foot down many steep steps.




Pitch and Putt is normally also an option here as well as crazy golf, although I cannot remember seeing any pitch and putt flags this year.

The courtyard to the Rylstone Tea Rooms is a sun trap with lots and lots of hanging baskets and crazy golf challenges dotted about.





Rylstone Gardens are free and are open to the public.  Shanklin Beach South is also accessible from this area by going down steep but wide steps at the coastal edge of Rylstone Gardens.
