Summer Days on the Isle of Wight
Britain's Warmest Climate
A day in the warmest climate in Britain on the Isle of Wight including visits to the Needles Attraction Centre
Followed by an afternoon at the picturesque seaside town of Shanklin.

For centuries the unique site of the Needles has welcomed home returning mariners from around the World. At the Needles Attraction Centre you'll have the opportunity to view the Needles by using the chairlifts or walking down the pathway to the beach. You'll also have the opportunity to take a boat tour of the Needles. You can also enjoy many other attractions or just enjoy a snack or a drink.
The village of Shanklin is certainly one of the UKs most picturesque seaside resorts. Beautiful golden sandy beach, thatched houses, quaint streets lined with shops, bars and café's.
You'll also have time to visit the famous 'Shanklin Chine' a gully cut through the cliff over centuries by a stream. Alternately maybe enjoy a few hours on the beach.
