DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – Sit back, relax and enjoy the leisurely journey across to the Isle of Wight.
Day 2 – This morning we travel to The Needles where you can admire The Needles Rocks and Trinity Lighthouse - the Isle of Wight’s most famous landmark. After a short photo opportunity we continue to Yarmouth. This historic port town sits at the mouth of the River Yar and is home to some of the oldest architecture on the Isle of Wight, including a 16th Century castle. This afternoon, we visit the National Trust’s Mottistone Gardens; set in a sheltered valley, this magical garden is full of surprises, with shrub-filled banks, hidden pathways and colourful herbaceous borders.
Day 3 – After a leisurely breakfast, enjoy free time in Sandown Town. Sitting on the southern coast of the Isle of Wight, Sandown is acclaimed for its long stretches of sandy beaches and a traditional British seafront and pier.
Day 4 – Our first stop today is at the seaside resort of Shanklin, where over 70% of the area has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. After a little free time, we travel to Godshill village, which boasts some of the oldest architecture on the Island. Here, you can enjoy its delightful Medieval church, charming thatched-roof cottages and it’s winding main-street lined with traditional tearooms. This afternoon we will enjoy free time in Ventnor, one of Britain’s most famous Victorian health resorts due to its unique microclimate.
Day 5 – After a wonderful getaway we begin our journey home.
