English Tourist Board Approved Attraction

Shanklin Chine

This attraction was nominated by @lovebrownsigns

Enjoy the unique tranquility of Shanklin Chine, the Isle of Wight’s oldest tourist attraction, which first opened in 1817. This famous leafy gorge 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. The Heritage Centre onsite is excellent too, with information and films about the important part the Isle of Wight played during WWII when the PLUTO (pipeline under the ocean) ran across the island (you can still see it) which kept allied troops in Europe supplied with the petrol that sustained their resistance throughout the war.
