Shanklin & Victoria’s Isle of Wight

Enjoy a fabulous stay on one of the UK’s most popular holiday islands. In the 19th century, Queen Victoria brought her court and wealthy Victorians to the Isle of Wight. The Queen’s annual holidays transformed this quiet island into the much-visited destination it is today, and it’s not hard to see why. More than half the Isle of Wight is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With spectacular scenery and a rich royal heritage, the island has plenty to offer all year round.

We’ll whisk you away and over the water on the short crossing from the mainland to your charming hotel in its prime cliff top location overlooking pretty Sandown Bay. With fantastic facilities including a sprung dance floor, games room, indoor heated swimming pool and entertainment most evenings, you are also within easy reach of Shanklin town centre, old village and lovely seafront. Shanklin blends picture-postcard thatched cottages with traditional seaside charm. Stroll along the golden blue flag beaches or discover the beauty of Shanklin Chine, filled with rare plants, wildlife and enchanting waterfalls.

You can have plenty of time to explore on your own or join our included excursions to experience some of the best the island has to offer.

“It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot” said Queen Victoria of Osborne House, her palatial holiday home on the Isle of Wight, and you can discover why on our included visit. Then see it all on our scenic ‘Round the Island Tour’. Just sit back, relax and let us look after you as you take in the picture-perfect sights. With a few hours in the pretty village of Godshill also included, this is the perfect showcase to sample so many of the delights the island has to offer.

An ideal choice for:

* Anyone looking for a chance to explore the best of the Isle of Wight
* Traditional seaside lovers looking for a relaxing break
* Picture perfect settings and scenery
