Shanklin Old Village 1
Shanklin Old Village is
a small part of
Shanklin itself and contains some of
the oldest dwellings the majority of them thatched. It is on a
slightly lower level than the town of Shanklin and is famous for it's
small gift shops and tea rooms. There
are also several small and unique restaurants, 4 pubs and 1 Hotel Bar,
two quite large Hotels, chip shop, and some of the tea rooms are now
licensed as well.
See our Pub guide for personal recommendations of which pub to eat in or simply have a drink in around this area.
The entrance to Shanklin Chine is down the narrow road to the right of this picture. Note the drinking fountain to the right.

Go down the lane on the left of the picture to get to Rylstone Gardens and Tea Rooms with pitch and putt and crazy golf.
Go through these gardens and down a series of steps and you arrive on Shanklin Beach!
Many of the properties have thatched roofs.
Looking down from the centre of The Village where the majority of the gift shops, small restaurants, tea rooms, pubs are. Not forgetting Shanklin Chine is down there with Rylestone Manor and Gardens with tea rooms with crazy golf or pitch and putt.
Notice the 20 mph speed limit signs which is a good idea because this area does get very busy and the road has a bad bend in it and there is no crossing.
