DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive home pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel to Beaulieu with comfort stops enroute.  Arrive at your hotel late afternoon, tea & coffee will be served on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

This morning we visit the nearby Beaulieu National Motor Museum where over 250 vintage vehicles are exhibited depicting the story of motoring in the UK and motor racing internationally. 

 

There is also the Victorian splendour of Palace House to enjoy as well as the tranquil ruins of the 12th century Cistercian Beaulieu Abbey and the estate’s beautiful grounds and gardens. 

 

This afternoon we make our way to Buckler’s Hard where we step back in time to the 18th century with a guided tour of this historic naval shipbuilding centre, famous for having built warships for Nelson’s navy. Located on the beautiful Beaulieu River we also embark on a 30-minute river cruise to learn of the history and wildlife found in its picturesque banks.

 

DAY THREE

We visit Salisbury this morning with free time to explore this medieval city’s historic streets and alleyways, half-timbered buildings and magnificent Cathedral, boasting the tallest spire in the UK.  In the afternoon we travel to Mottisfont, a romantic house and gallery set in beautiful riverside gardens with a medieval priory at its heart.  The gardens are a feast for the senses all year-round with a stunning rose garden and world-famous collection of old-fashioned roses.

 

DAY FOUR

We enjoy a day trip to the Isle of Wight today, travelling from the historic port of Lymington.  We spend time at leisure in Cowes and visit Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s much-loved palatial seaside home.  Maritime museums, a beautiful seafront full of sailing yachts, famous shopping streets, pavement cafes and galleries can all be explored before we make our back to the mainland and our hotel.
