ISLE OF WIGHT

Spring on the Isle of Wight is a delightful time due to its mild climate and many attractions. It is an ideal location for a Spring Break. Many of the hidden secrets of this popular Isle are discovered on this relaxing and varied tour.

The Royal Esplanade Hotel is a beautiful Victorian Grade II listed building that has been lovingly and sympathetically restored. The hotel is perfectly situated on the Esplanade, facing the Solent, in the centre of the Victorian seaside town of Ryde. Rooms are well equipped with TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift serving all floors.
