POOL NATURE RESERVE & TEAROOMS (FULL DAY): Poole is a bustling resort, known for being Europe's largest natural harbour, award-winning Blue Flag beaches including the world-famous Sandbanks Beach and a beautiful historic old town. We also visit Blue Pool Nature Reserve, whose water is a natural phenomenon famous for its ever-changing colours, caused by the very fine clay which diffracts light in different ways, producing a spectrum of colour - sometimes green, sometimes turquoise! Now an official site of Special Scientific interest the Pool is surrounded by 25-acres of woodland interlaced with sandy paths (and benches) that seem to take you to another world. Here, we have arranged a cream tea for you to enjoy in the vintage style Tea Room which overlooks the Blue Pool.


(FULL DAY): Voted the resort with the best beach in Britain two years running. Enjoy all the traditional seaside attractions in Bournemouth, including the Pier and Bournemouth Gardens, home of the famous Bandstand.


LYMINGTON (FULL DAY): This morning we travel to Lyndhurst, also known as the capital of the New Forest, with highlights that include the New Forest Heritage Centre, which provides a unique guide into the forest's history and heritage. If you fancy something sweet, you'll find a variety of cosy tea rooms, cafés and ice cream parlours. Later we travel to the colourful coastal town of Lymington for free time to enjoy the ancient seaport with a rich maritime history to discover.
