DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We take you to the Isle of Wight for 6 nights.
Day 2 – After breakfast the day is yours to discover why Sandown has been dubbed “Dinosaur Island”. Head over to the Dinosaur Museum to explore more about Isle of Wight’s past, visit the local Zoo, built within the ruins of a Victorian Fort. Or enjoy a peaceful walk along the Esplanade until you reach Yaverland Beach, which is regarded as one of the Islands best beaches.
Day 3 – We take you first to Cowes, uniquely split into two by the River Medina and steeped in rich maritime history. We then continue to Godshill, calling at the Old Smithy & Gardens. This quintessential English village boasts some of the oldest architecture on the Isle of Wight, showing off a medieval church, charming thatched-roofed cottages and traditional tearooms.
Day 4 – Enjoy a second day of leisure to sample Sandown’s beautiful sheltered bays.
Day 5 – We hit the road today for a full day of exploration around the Island. Throughout the day we will visit the iconic Needles, home to a famous chairlift as well as Alum Bay, renowned for its picturesque sand cliffs. We also go to Freshwater Bay, home to one of the prettiest beaches in the Isle of Wight before we travel back to the hotel.
Day 6 – We arrive at Osborne House, one of the most visited houses in Britain, originally designed by Queen Victoria’s beloved Prince Albert. Set in acres of beautiful grounds and ornamental rose gardens. It’s easy to see why this house was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite places.
Day 7 – We bid a fond farewell taking home great memories and great new friends.
