Travel with us to the Isle of Wight, a jewel of an island which enjoys a mild climate and contains miles of sandy beaches, shores dotted with yachts, beautiful countryside and picturesque seaside towns and villages.
We will travel aboard a luxury coach and take the ferry from Portsmouth to Ryde, a pleasant 45 min trip. Once we arrive, our first destination will be Ventnor on the South Coast, where we will discover the stunning Ventnor Botanic Garden, famous for its semi tropical plant collection which is supported by a unique microclimate. Wander the winding Victorian streets of Ventnor, full of quirky shops, before we depart for our next stop.
A short hop away is Shanklin, one of the most popular holiday destinations on the island. Explore the seaside promenade, or discover Shanklin Chine, a historic gorge containing a 45 foot waterfall. This unusual spot has been open to the public since 1817. Shanklin is a great place to stop for lunch, with some wonderful seafood restaurants and beachside cafes.
Our last stop will be the historic and elegant former home of Queen Victoria – Osborne House. Here you can have a taste of what the private lives of the Royal family would have been like as you stroll through the sumptuously decorated rooms and extensive grounds, enjoying the incredible views over the Solent. A perfect place to end a fantastic day, we will make our way back to the ferry port and to London.
