Isle of Wight

Isle of Wight

Situated just four miles from the mainland across the Solent, the Isle of Wight is often described as ‘The Garden Isle’, the wonderful scenery and attractive resorts make it the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Enjoying an
unseasonable amount of warmth and sunshine, more than half the Isle of Wight has been designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty.

Your Itinerary

Sunday: We head south for our Solent crossing, by ferry, to the Isle of Wight and on to the Brunswick Hotel, our home for the duration of your holiday.

Monday: This morning we head for nearby Godshill, a picturesque village renowned for its pretty thatched cottages and famous for its model village set in the gardens of the old vicarage. The remainder of the day is free in the village of Shanklin, a extremely pretty village famed the area for the pretty thatched cottages, quaint shops and old fashioned tea rooms. You can also use the cliff top lift, take the small train or take a stroll down to the safe sandy beach where the bay is sheltered from the prevailing wind by Dunnose Point,
which is a stunning backdrop, with the tall cliffs of Luccombe beyond.

Tuesday: Today we begin our day with a visit to Cowes. The vibrant seaport town of Cowes is situated in the north of the Isle of Wight, on the west bank of the estuary of the River Medina. The home of international yacht racing, it is perhaps most famous for Cowes Week when hoards of visitors descend on the town for the famous regatta. We return via Ryde. In addition to an expanse of sandy beaches which stretch right along the town, Ryde has a great selection of boutique shops, museums and galleries for you to visit along with lots of other things to see and do along its esplanade.

Wednesday: Full day visit to Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s palace by the sea. Look out for Victorian opulence, extravagant interiors and jaw-dropping Indian decor in the Durbar Room. Osborne was built as a family home and as you walk through the Queen’s bedroom, the nursery rooms and even royal bathrooms, you get an intimate glimpse into royal family life. There are acres of grounds and gardens to relax in, horse and carriage rides to take and a delightful restaurant and cafe.

Thursday: Morning ferry across the Solent and homeward bound for Shropshire and surrounding area.
