  • A fantastic view point to enjoy an amazing panoramic scenario of the isle of Wight. Great walk, although after the constant rain from previous day's, a bit slippery.
  • Steep walk up the hill from the car park but on a beautiful day it's worth it for the view! The car park (free) is on the other side of the road to the oratory so be cautious crossing the main the road.
  • The walk is worth it. When you get to the top prepare to be amazed at the view
  • Long walk up the hill in the sea mist, but worth it when the sun burned it off and the view came out.
  • The views from the top of the cliffs are amazing to say the least. There is not much to see at the oratory. It's a fair hike to the top but not that difficult. I presume during summer you could sit at the top all day long enjoying the views over the bay/ocean. It was calm and quiet. Parking is at the bottom from where the road passes. Please note there are no toilets around. It is very close to blackgang chine.
