The Needles Rocks


The Needles Rocks are some of the most photographed groups of rocks in the world. This row of three distinctive chalk stacks features in all the classic views of the Isle of Wight – a truly unforgettable image. 

The name ‘Needles’ is believed to have been derived from a slender tapering rock pinnacle that was formerly situated a little to the north, on the Alum Bay side of the present central rock.
