Home to the world-famous Alum Bay coloured sands and the birthplace of ship-to-shore radio, The Needles Park offers a great trade-off between learning and fun.
Here you can see the glassmaking process from end-to-end - from collecting and processing the sand through to the skills of the blower. Or take a ride on the breathtaking chairlift down the chine and onto the beach below to see erosion in action on a daily basis in the shadow of the world-famous Needles rocks (age/height limit applies).
Learn about Marconi's very first radio broadcasts from the Isle of Wight and see confectionery being made for sale in the gift shop. Make your own coloured sand sculptures or enjoy a ride on some of the many fairground-style attractions.
In our experience, school trips to The Needles: Landmark Attraction work best for the younger age groups as well as adults
