First opened to the public in 1817, the young Princess Victoria visited Shanklin Chine aged 14 with her mother in 1833. Entry was via Fisherman’s Cottage (open as a pub today) where local fisherman and smuggler William Colenutt charged an entrance fee. According to legend the then Princess Victoria helped herself to a prawn on the way in!
Queen Victoria continued to visit Shanklin Chine including a visit on Monday, 10 August 1846, with Prince Albert and Leopold and Louise (King and Queen of the Belgians).
