The Needles – Landmark Attraction (previously known as The Needles Pleasure Park) situated at the top of the cliff is a small amusement park with go karts, Jurassic adventure golf, and small fairground rides. A chairlift operates from the top of the Alum Bay cliffs down to the beach below with spectacular views of the picturesque Needles Rocks and Lighthouse, as well as the multi-coloured sand cliffs of Alum Bay and the stunning turquoise waters beyond. Not sure about age restrictions for the chairlift but our 3-4 year old group was allowed without being asked anything.
The views from the chairlift as as it comes down at the Needles in Isle of Wight is just out of this world.. STUNNING
Scenic boat trips (and speedy boats) operate from Alum Bay to offer close-up views of the Needles. (Speedy boat 6+ and above, slow boat 3+). The rocks and lighthouse have become icons of the Isle of Wight, often photographed by visitors, and are featured on many of the souvenirs sold throughout the island.
The world famous Marconi Monument is also located here, marking the location where Guglielmo Marconi undertook his pioneering work at the end of the 19th Century which led to radio and all telecommunications as we know it today.
You could also climb up or down the cliff yourself and have a little picnic on the way. End your day by buying souvenirs from alum bay glass
