Shanklin is a popular seaside resort on the Isle of Wight, located on Sandown Bay.
Shanklin is the southernmost of three settlements which occupy the bay, and is close to Lake and Sandown.
The sandy beach, its Old Village and a wooded ravine are popular attractions, and the esplanade along the beach is populated by hotels and restaurants which are very popular with tourists.
In July and August 1819 the poet John Keats was staying at Eglantine Cottage in the High Street, where he completed the first book of Lamia and began a drama, Otho the Great, with his friend Charles Armitage Brown.
