#45 - Launch a kite over the white cliffs of Tennyson Down
Isle Of Wight
AboutThe Alfred Tennyson monument, which sits at the top of the Down also bearing his name, is the second most recognisable landmark in the west of the Island, after the nearby Needles Rocks and Lighthouse. A pleasant walk from Freshwater Bay to the top of the down opens up to fabulous 360 degree views across the whole of the Island and out to sea.
Being so open has its advantages – on even the less windy of days there is usually a competent breeze across the top of Tennyson Down, which makes it the perfect spot from which to fly a kite.
If you don’t want to bring your own kite, some of our outdoor activity providers can offer exciting “power kite” sessions, although they might have to pick the location for you.
