A delightful tour offering a varied choice and featuring a part of England that has something for everyone.

 

 

DAY ONE

We depart for your holiday from your own front door with our home pick-up service before travelling to Hampshire with comfort stops enroute.  Arrive at your hotel late afternoon where tea/coffee & biscuits will be served whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

This morning we enjoy a relaxing cruise of around 2 hours on a traditional-style canal boat on the Basingstoke Canal.  We cruise through peaceful and attractive scenery and drinks and light refreshment are available to purchase on board.  After our cruise we head off into Basingstoke and to Milestones, this is a living history museum where you can wander down cobbled streets, chat with staff in period costume and explore the shops and factories to experience everyday lift from 1810 to 1950.

 

 

DAY THREE

Our excursion begins with a journey on the Mid Hants Railway known as ‘The Watercress Line’ for a 20 mile return journey over the ‘Hampshire Alps’ from Alresford which is the home of the Hampshire Watercress industry from which the line takes its name.  Later we continue to historic Winchester with its magnificent Cathedral for the remainder of the afternoon.

 

DAY FOUR

A complete change today as we journey to the coast, Portsmouth is our destination and there will be plenty of interest and to see and do.  Visit the Historic Dockyard, home of ‘Victory’ and ‘Mary Rose’, wander around the Old Town and visit the Cathedral as well as Spice Island, former haunt of smugglers and press gangs.  Enjoy a stroll along the seafront or just sit and relax and watch the many ships and ferries coming and going.
