Shopping at the Needles Old Battery
When you arrive, or just before you go, take a look around our Guardroom for a little something to take home as a souvenir for yourself, or a treat for someone else.
It might only be small but there’s a lot to choose from. Jams and chutneys, books, children’s games and toys, and local postcards all line the walls. On a hot day tuck in and cool down with an ice cream.
Heading further afield
If you're heading off for a walk around the Needles Headland then it's a good place to stock up on essential supplies. Bags and walking guides, poles and even Kendal mint cake provide all that you need for a trek or gentle stroll.
Get closer to nature
There's a wealth of wildlife around the Needles Headland and it's a great area for bird spotting. If you’re not sure what you’ve seen, then we’ve handy guides to flora and fauna and even binoculars so you can get a closer view. With almost 360 degree views of the sea from the Battery, they also come in handy for watching the boats in the Solent as you explore.
