We enjoyed getting the needles breezer. It took us past some interesting places such as the thatched church. We got the group ticket for up to 5 as it saved us a lot of money. It was well worth it. The commentary was interesting, and...More

To reach the Breezer by public transport requires ferry to Ryde, a bus to Newport and another bus to Yarmouth. Obtaining this information in advance is not easy...the brochures do not provide it and the Information Desk at Portsmouth Harbour cannot assist. The Breezer itself...More

Really enjoyed seeing part of the Island from the top deck. Great views & good fun. Glenn was our driver - friendly & helpful. Not bad value if you use it as part of your day out rather than just a bus ride!

Sat outside on the open top at the back of the bus - bit of a wild ride! A lot of fun. Enjoyed the commentary throughout. Great way to get around if you're completely new to the isle of wight or if you've got limited...More

The needles can be seen from a viewpoint along side the car park but make sure you have a good coat as the day we went the wind was strong there is a coffee shop nearby but still worth a visit, then walk up to...More

Only on arrival yesterday did I discover that even in full season they only run the fast boat round the Needles during school holidays and at weekends; so I had to take the slow boat, which (as someone pointed out here earlier) does not allow...More
