Safety, comfort and hygiene measures are all in place during your visit. For a close-up view of the dramatic Needles Rocks and Lighthouse, take one of the pleasure boats* from the jetty for a dramatic trip around the rocks and lighthouse and panoramic views of the Alum Bay sand cliffs….
An absolutely roaring success, our newly improved and refurbished for 2018 prehistoric Jurassic Adventure Golf course now features a 11-hole course with some 5 and 6 par holes all beautifully set off by imaginative water features and storyboards depicting 11 different dinosaur species.
One of the kids’ favourite rides at The Needles is the Tea Cup Ride! Jump in your very own teacup which spins and whirls around. Spin your wheel to increase the pace or go gentle if you prefer a slower ride. Each cup can take up to 4 people so it’s great fun for all the family.

As we are a big family we bought the supersaver tickets to go on chairlift. This was amazing, I am not good with heights but it was very gentle and the views were stunning. Alum bay is gorgeous, we were lucky with the weather and spent about an hour on the beach...Lovely day out, something you should see if you go to the Isle of Wight

What a stunning place, so beautiful in any weather. The views are incredible.
