Needles Rocks

Visiting the Needles Rocks is a must-have for many who come to the Isle of Wight and it is always worthwhile doing. Why not head up to the Needles Battery? This Old Victorian fort has unrivalled views over the Needles Rocks and the surrounding countryside. Alternatively, you could go on a Needles pleasure cruise instead and see the rocks up close from the water.

Shanklin Chine

This is one of the oldest Isle of Wight tourist attractions and this famous leafy gorge is the perfect place to visit if you’re searching for somewhere breathtaking to walk around. Whilst Shanklin Chine is a brilliant place to visit during the day, we would recommend you go after dark when hundreds of lights illuminate the narrow paths, streams and waterfalls.

With lots of different events throughout the year, the Garlic Farm is another great place to visit. You can wander around the farm, shop their fresh produce and dine in their restaurant, and they also provide brilliant group days out. With tractor-trailer rides, cooking workshops and lots of other fun activities, you should always consider a visit to this unique farm.

Osborne House is breathtaking and one of the Island’s busiest tourist attractions, so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
