HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Isle of Wight Tour   |   Ryde   |   Shanklin   |   Isle of Wight Railway   |   Osborne House & Gardens

 

 

DAY ONE – Arrival

We depart from your home and travel south to Portsmouth and our ferry crossing to Fishbourne, from here we continue to our hotel.

 

DAY TWO – Osborne House

This morning, we make our way to what was once Queen Victoria’s much-loved palatial seaside home, Osborne House. We visit the private apartments and state rooms as well as the beautiful gardens and Queen Victoria’s beach, where there is a bathing machine in which the Queen used to get undressed! Tying in with Queen Victoria and the 2017 film “Victoria and Abdul”, a trail has been specially created, Victoria’s Island Trail, to celebrate the island’s royal connections, with Osborne House being a key location on the trail.

 

DAY THREE – Circular Island Tour

Today, we board our coach for a circular tour of the island, which boasts 60 miles of spectacular coastline and stunning scenery, affording plenty of magnificent views. We start our day in the historic port town of Yarmouth which is home to the oldest architecture on the island, including a 16th century castle, and a grade 2 listed pier. We continue to the Needles Park which boasts fabulous ocean views and is home to the iconic chairlift, which operates from the cliff-top at Alum Bay down to the beach below where we can see the Needles Rocks and coloured sands. We then continue our journey to St Catherine’s Lighthouse - the Isle of Wight’s most famous landmark, returning to our hotel with time to relax before dinner this evening.

 

 

 

 

DAY FOUR – Isle of Wight Steam Railway

This morning, we enjoy a journey on the award-winning Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Settling back on our leisurely 5-mile journey, we travel on two stretches of line, starting at Havenstreet Station from where we travel to Smallbrook Junction. From here, we enjoy a return trip to Havenstreet, where we will embark on the next stage of our journey to Wootton, before returning to Havenstreet. In the afternoon, we spend time at leisure in Shanklin, with time to explore all that the traditional seaside resort has to offer.
