Shanklin Chine

Enjoy the unique tranquillity of Shanklin Chine, the Isle of Wight’s oldest tourist attraction

This famous leafy gorge, which first opened in 1817, is much loved by poets, artists and writers. The winding woodland, with its steep sides is a magical place for rare plants, wildlife and enchanting waterfalls.

New for 2012: Historic Jubilee Exhibition.

The Heritage Centre presents Turner's Isle of Wight Landscapes and the Discovery of Shanklin Chine from his sketchbook of 1795. We also include scenic works of Victorian artist, Lefevre James Cranstone, in addition to vignettes of Queen Victoria’s Golden and Diamond Jubilees.

There is also a permanent display to PLUTO (Pipe Line Under The Ocean). The video and display show the fascinating story of how the pipeline carried petrol to the Allied troops in Normandy.
