Itinerary

Sunday We travel from Cornwall to Hampshire and board the ferry for the Isle of Wight.

Monday Crossing the island we enjoy a tour of the unspoiled south coast of the isle and include visits to Sandown, Shanklin Old Town and the pretty village of Godshill. Here we include admission to the Model Village, a step back in time to an era of traditional family attractions.

Tuesday A day at leisure in Ryde to stroll along the beach, enjoy the local attractions or explore the island independently.

Wednesday We travel across the island today and visit the Needles Rocks and the famous coloured sands. There will be time to take the chair lift to view the spectacular sight or browse the park. After lunch we return to Ryde for a visit to the peaceful Quarr Abbey, a Benedictine Monastery which is home to Solesmes monks.

Thursday Our excursion today takes us to Carisbrooke Castle. This quintessential romantic castle has been an Elizabethan artillery fortress, a king’s prison and a royal summer residence. We also visit the vibrant town of Cowes which is home to the oldest and biggest sailing regatta in the world.

Friday After breakfast we take the ferry back to the mainland and after a break for lunch we complete the journey to Cornwall.
