    Aquatic adventures and old-school amusements

    Whatever the weather, you'll find fun in abundance in Shanklin. The Isle of Wight is one of the UK's premier destinations for water sports, from relaxing pursuits like sailing and kayaking, to adrenaline-pumping activities like kite surfing and wakeboarding. The town boasts an array of colourful diversions for kids of all ages, from retro amusement arcades to quirky mini-golf courses. If you're in the market for a little self-indulgence, treat yourself to a traditional afternoon tea, complete with dainty finger sandwiches, freshly-baked scones and lashings of clotted cream.

    Prehistoric pleasures and monkey business

    You'll find a wealth of alluring attractions virtually on the doorstep of your Shanklin holiday rental. The Shanklin Theatre is a stunningly preserved Victorian playhouse, and one of the Isle of Wight's best-loved entertainment venues. It plays host to an enthralling year-round programme of toe-tapping musicals, pop concerts and side-splitting stand-up comedy. For a magical family day trip, take the troop to Dinosaur Isle, the UK's first purpose-built dinosaur museum. Here, you can peruse a collection of captivating fossils and life-size replicas, and even take control of a robotic dinosaur. For a spot of animal magic, head to Monkey Haven to get up close and personal with a host of playful primates, plus adorable owls and kookaburras.

    Sultry summer days in Shanklin

    Shanklin holiday rentals are in particularly high demand throughout the peak summer season of June to August. At this time of year, days are typically long and blissfully warm, with plenty of sunshine and clear blue skies. May and September are also lovely times to visit, with agreeably mild temperatures and fewer out-of-towners competing for a prime spot on the beach. Early spring and late autumn tend to be fresh, while winters can be downright cold, although the Isle of Wight's climate is generally milder than much of the UK. Rain is a possibility at any time of year, so pack your umbrella.

    Shanklin's ancient natural wonders

    Some of Shanklin's most spectacular sights were crafted by Mother Nature. The Shanklin Chine is a breathtaking tree-lined gorge, replete with cascading waterfalls. This lush ravine is home to a host of birds, such as blue tits and grey wagtails, as well as cuddly critters like chipmunks and red squirrels. The Isle of Wight is also a haven for amateur archaeologists, as it's famously the richest place in the UK for dinosaur remains. Join a guided fossil walk, and let a local expert lead you towards prehistoric treasures like dinosaur bones and teeth.
