Day 2Enjoy a free day to relax in the hotel, take a walk, or perhaps take one of the frequent buses to another part of the island. Shanklin Old Village is a favourite attraction, where most of the picturesque cottages clustered around the thatched Crab Inn have now become craft and gift shops or restaurants.

Day 4We start the day at Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s palatial holiday home. There’s an opportunity to visit Victoria and Albert’s private apartments, their bathing beach and children’s play-cottage for an intimate glimpse of royal family life. Then stroll through the garden terraces with stunning views across the Solent. In the afternoon we visit Godshill, a picturesque village full of thatched cottages.
Day 5Morning visit to The Needles. The iconic lighthouse and needle rocks is a destination not to be missed. Here you will also find a range of attractions, such as glass blowing, and a variety of shops. From here we make a stop in Ventnor, a traditional seaside resort on the South of the island.
