Gardens in or near The Needles
The Needles is one of the Island's most famous landmarks. Every year, nearly half a million people visit to view these jagged chalk stacks, lighthouse and the unique multi coloured sand cliffs. On the outermost rock is the Needles Lighthouse, which was manned until 1997. It first became popular with tourists over 200 years ago, and in Victorian times the area attracted large numbers of visitors who travelled from the mainland by paddle steamer.
