The Wilds of Adventure
Headon Warren is a rambling maze of winding paths, historic relics and flat, heather-hewn viewing points with dramatic views over the Solent.
After stocking up on vital energy-fuelling rhubarb and custard treats from the ingeniously-placed sweet factory at ground level, scramble up the National Trust protected parkland in search of a bronze-age burial mound and mortar shell craters left behind by the US army in WWII.
While some of the steep slopes here would be better suited to slightly older children or babes in arms, inquisitive minds of any age should find their interest piqued by the sense of history and reminders of a forgotten age lying amongst the beautiful flora, native rabbits and birds of the area.
The truly adventurous can take the needles chairlift down the face of the dramatic coastal cliffs, taking in the multicoloured sand cliffs and rocks. Luckily for our (less than at ease with heights) group, a brisk wind deemed this too daring and we set off for our final challenge, the towers of adventure.
