    Shanklin Chine

    This is Shanklin's oldest attraction, and for good reason. This is a beautiful leafy valley and nature trail. We had a great walk through an the boys loved the nature hide, a kid's area about the Chine and its history, as well as seeing red squirrel on the live camera.

    Beautiful thatched buildings and cottages, this is a great area to explore. The boys loved the thatched roofs and we wandered through for quite a while, admiring everything.

    It's true what they say about this place - it really is more than a fossil shop. We ventured in and stayed for quite a while, talking to Jim while the boys explored. Jim has been fossil hunting for over 50 years and his knowledge is very impressive!

    Who knew garlic could be so... interesting? We took a tour around the farm and had a great garlic meal in the restaurant. As one person said - "there's no vampires here"!

    This is a fun place, a typical English entertainment pier. We took a look around the arcade and funfair, and had a quick game of indoor golf before enjoying an ice cream and coffee. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

    The Waterfront Inn Restaurant

    After a morning on the beach, we popped in here for a light lunch and were blown away by the quality of the food and service. The kid's meals were well portioned for a fraction of the price, and our meals were the same.

    The Strawberry Thatch Restaurant

    What a treat, we enjoyed an early dessert of cakes and ice cream, much to the boy's delight, all enjoyed on the picnic tables outside.

    We had a great dinner here after exploring the Chine. The boys loved their fish and chips, as did we. Great family atmosphere, friendly staff. Highly recommend.

    A typical country inn with wonderful views of the Island. The weather wasn't great so it was good to be able to sit next to the fire! Everyone was looked after, even the dogs that were bought in by other customers.

    The best Guinness in Sandown! We had a delicious pork roast for dinner as the sun was setting. Another great place close to the beach.

    Darwin's delight

    Charles Darwin himself stayed at the Waterfront Inn, then named The Norfolk House Hotel. It was 1858, and he was 49, visiting the seaside for its curative properties. Cool!

    Old Sandown

    Sandown has been a holiday retreat since the Victorian age due to the beautiful sands and sunny wearer compared to other parts of the UK.
