INCLUDED EXCURSIONS

 

New Forest Scenic Drive - Capital of the New Forest Lyndhurst & Lymington

Step back in time and discover the charm and natural beauty of the unique destination of the New Forest which became a national park in 2005. Once a royal hunting ground for William the Conqueror, it covers an area of 566 square kilometres and is made up of vast tracts of unspoilt woodland, heathland and river valleys. Today deer, ponies and cattle continue to roam free in its ancient heaths and woodland as well as through the quaint traditional villages.

From the hotel travel eastwards past Christchurch to the historic market town of Lymington, with its charming cobbled streets and old buildings, a great place for a spot of shopping. Its location at the mouth of the Lymington River has resulted in a colourful history of smuggling, shipbuilding, and sailing. Watch fishing boats and yachts coming and going from the Quay. Some free time here before heading northwards to Lyndhurst often referred to as the 'capital' of the New Forest. The Court of Verderers has been held here since medieval times - making it the longest-running court in the country - controlling the number of ponies which can graze in the Forest. The New Forest Visitor Centre (free entry) - with museum, gallery, information centre, and shop is well worth a visit. Time here for a bite to eat and sightseeing. Return to the hotel late afternoon via Burley..

 

Poole & Cruise to Swanage

Start your day on charming Poole Quay before boarding your boat for a scenic cruise (approx. 1 hour & included) to the Victorian resort of Swanage, passing Brownsea Island, the beaches of Studland Bay and the opening cliffs of the Jurassic coast.   Arrive at Swanage pier to spend some time in this popular coastal town, transformed during the Victorian era into a seaside favourite and now a well-established atmospheric resort with a long beach, interesting shops, fresh clean air and rich heritage. Your driver will transfer you back to Bournemouth later in the afternoon

 

OPTIONAL EXCURSION

Weymouth 

Just along the coast to bustling Weymouth - a grand dame of a resort with a wonderful sandy shore. The historic harbour is filled with luxury yachts and fishing boats and the unique Nothe Gardens, the town's Victorian sub-tropical garden overlooking the bay is well worth a visit.

Day 5 - After breakfast and check out and head back to interchange and onward to your hometowns.
