Shanklin Shuttle

The Shanklin Shuttle links Shanklin town & rail station to the Esplanade & picturesque Old Village.

From the town centre down the steep hill to the Esplanade with its sandy beaches and numerous cafes and pubs is the great start to a family day out. Later on climb aboard to save the walk up the hill and stop off for a cream tea in the Old Village or explore Shanklin Chine or wander around Rylstone Gardens.

The Shanklin Shuttle returns in 2019!
