Self guided walks - Walk the forts 
For 500 years, coastal defences have stood guard over the Needles Passage at the westernmost tip of the Isle of Wight.
With the guidance of our booklet you can explore these defences and learn their story. The twelve mile walk takes in some spectacular views on the coastal path and brings some fascinating history to life.
