Friday 27th: We travel south via the motorways arriving at our hotel for check-in.
Saturday 28th: Full day tour travelling via Sandbanks (Home of the Millionaires) to Poole
and Salisbury. Poole, famed for its large natural harbour, claimed to be the second largest
in the world. During the second world war the town was one of the central departing points
for the D-Day landings. We continue on to our lunch stop at Salisbury. Salisbury’s history
dates back to the iron age, but it is best known for having the tallest Cathedral spire in
England along with a well preserved medieval town with many wooden buildings.
Sunday 29th: This morning is free in Bournemouth and after time for lunch we take a
tour through the New Forest. The forest is a living and working place where ponies and
cattle freely graze the land and help keep the patchwork of different habitats intact. We
take a round trip to include Lyndhurst & Lymington before following the coast back to
Monday 30th: Sadly after breakfast we bid farewell to Bournemouth and begin our journey
