Day 1: Following your home collection, we make a relaxed departure to the south coast for the Isle of Wight ferry. On arrival, we make the short journey to our hotel in Sandown.
Day 2: We spend the morning in Ryde a pretty seaside town, with six miles of
beautiful sandy beach, a pier and some charming streets full of individual little shops. Later we travel to the Roman Villa at Brading, situated overlooking Sandown Bay. Brading Roman Villa is one of the finest Roman sites in the UK. The Visitor Centre and Museum offer unique insights into Roman life in Britain from beautifully preserved mosaic floors to an extensive collection of Roman archaeology.
Day 3: This morning, we pause in Shanklin old village, which contains some of the oldest dwellings on the Island of which the majority are Thatched. We then pass ‘Victorian Ventnor’ to Godshill, with its 14th-century church, delightful model village and famous thatched cottages.
Day 4: We pause in Cowes, the principal port of the Island, perhaps best known as the world’s premier yachting centre to wander along the famous Parade with its panoramic views of the Solent. We continue to Whippingham Church, the place where the Royals worshipped before proceeding to Osborne House, the island residence of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. We meet our guide for a tour of this wonderful house, which gives us a vivid glimpse of the Royal Family’s life.
Day 5: We travel along the south coast road passing Freshwater Bay to the island’s most westerly point, The Needles and the multi-coloured sands of Alum Bay. We return to our hotel via Yarmouth.
Day 6: Day at leisure.
Day 7: We depart our hotel to board the ferry. Upon arrival to the mainland, we continue to Norfolk, where you will return home with our carefree door to door service.
