Isle of Wight Rocks

The Needles Old Battery

Places to Visit

Children can go a wild adventure in the west this summer at the Needles Battery. 

Up on the downs, kids can discover just how many little wild plants and flowers grow on the important chalk grassland, or back at the Old Battery, they can create a home for bugs in a giant lighthouse.
