Isle of Wight Needles chairlift 'brilliant for kids'

The famous Needles on the Isle of Wight have been recommended for families taking a trip to the island.

According to a report by the Daily Mirror, the chairlift at the attraction is "brilliant" for kids, although the writer conceded he found the trip "terrifying".

There are lots of activities at the landmark, including a crazy golf course, a pirate ship and a teacups ride.

There was also praise for the local people, who the newspaper said "go out of their way" to be helpful to those on Isle of Wight holidays.

It was also noted a whole host of famous faces have been seduced by the charms of the island, with Twilight star Robert Pattinson spending New Year on the Isle of Wight.

He visited the island with fellow actor Kristen Stewart, prompting speculation the pair are dating and were planning to buy a holiday home on the island.
