Hygiene & Comfort Measures



We have extensive measures in place to open safely and comfortably, having reviewed every area both inside and out. This ensures your time with us is enjoyable, comfortable and all necessary measures are in place to provide a Covid secure environment. A plan of these measures is detailed below.

We are utilising our very wide-open site as there is plenty of space for you to roam. We are also opening a variety of catering, external seating, and open-air experiences and rides and attractions, which in turn provides plenty of space around our destination for our customers to feel comfortable and make social distancing measures much easier.

Thank you for your continued interest and support of The Needles, the destination, the Isle of Wight and all we have to offer here.
