The Needles, Isle of Wight

Is this an icon?

The Needles, Isle of Wight

It is often the first part of England that visitors from the continent see by sea. It is also hugely famous for being part of the many national and international sailing events. It is a stretch of land that is instantly recognisable from the air, to many people, the world over.

While the Needles are striking and -- once seen -- eminently memorable, I would suggest that they are not iconic, whereas Dover's White Cliffs might well be. In short, if one is going for a white chalk feature, Dover should get the nod, not the Needles...

The Needles lighthouse, and the Needles, are unique in the world, and always remind me of past holidays on the Isle of Wight.

I believe rice, peas and jerk chicken is an Icon of England.
