Part of our national heritage and the Island's very first tourist attraction, this scenic gorge in sandstone cliffs, with waterfalls and stream leads down to the beach. Rare flora and fauna, Nature Trail and historic features.

The exhibition "Aviation and the Island" continues, together with PLUTO (Pipe Line Under The Ocean) which carried petrol to the Allied troops in Normandy. Local history displays.

A memorial to 40 Royal Marine Commando who trained here for the 1942 raid of Dieppe.

After dusk, during the main summer months, subtle illuminations create a magical world.
