I am actually reviewing the Shanklin Shuttle which travels around Shanklin. The drivers are mostly helpful and friendly (came across one who was a bit miserable but we all have our off days). They always come on time (sometimes a little bit early so take this into account). All in all a five star service.

Easy way of getting to see bits of Shanklin you might miss otherwise. I have been using this bus every time we visit IOW and have always found the drivers so nice and friendly as well.

The open roof top buses are a good way to explore the island. These take you around the Needles. Explore this option.

Firstly a plea to Southern Vectis - please run this service from May as it is near impossible to get to Shanklin esplanade over the 1st May Bank Holiday as the cliff lift is so unreliable and the shape it is in you would not want to travel via it anyway as the walkway does not look safe! This is a brilliant service and the regular bus driver with his wealth of knowledge is an added bonus. You are offering a brilliant service so utilise it. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting Shanklin

When arriving at Shanklin Train Station we didn't know what bus to catch to Shanklin Esplanade but didn't know what number until Gary turned up with the Shanklin Steamer and helped with all of our luggage and explained very well to what happens at Shanklin and other places. It was great pleasure meeting Gary and he was very understanding and very helpful. The Shaw Family from Peterborough 😀
