I went in terrible weather and was battered along a fifteen minute walk by rain and wind only to discover that the rocks don't look like Needles. They look like rocks. In the sea.

I last visited the needles as a child was nice to go back, shame the chair lift was being repaired. Good fun to make sand shapes again. Very quiet at this time of year.

Disappointed. Visited during half term. Only gift shops open. Amusements and rides closed. Awful hot chocolate and coffee. Cold chips. Non Heinz ketchup in a Heinz ketchup bottle! Missed opportunity to make money. Better in Summer months

It is just a must see thing. Don't know why, but it is a must. A beauty created by Mother Nature to feast our eyes upon.

You buy vouchers that work out better value than paying for each ride. Each activity is a different amount of vouchers so you need to work out what you are doing to see how many vouchers you need. There is no entrance price... More

I don't know if the chairlift operator allows it but I don't think I would take a dog. It would be very easy for him/her to fall out.
