You are in a magic world of natural beauty, a rich haven of rare plants, woodland, wildlife and an enchanting waterfall. Formation of the Chine has taken place over the last 10,000 years. The stream would originally have flowed into the River Eastern Yar when Sandown Bay was land. This stream is continually cutting its way back to the foot of the Downs from whence it springs.

At night the Chine is transformed into a place of magic and enchantment. About 5 miles of cable and just under 200 lights have been installed, the majority of the lights being the most modern and up-to-date available.

The Chine Lodge is Victorian and built on the site of one of the oldest houses in Shanklin. At one time it was a guest house, very popular with newlyweds and for many years was known as Honeymoon Cottage. For a while it served as the first school in Shanklin for the fishermen's children.

Now an elegant conservatory has extended the Lodge to form the Heritage Centre which complements the Victorian Tea Garden and Gift Shop.
