Gorge on gorgeous scenery on this glorious getaway. We explore the proud waterfront city of Portsmouth, home to a wealth of attractions. Perhaps visit The Mary Rose Museum - or the landmark Emirates Spinnaker Tower with its panoramic harbour views, café and glass floored platform. Look forward to sailing across the Solent to the idyllic Isle of Wight. Here we visit Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s opulent seaside palace, and we call in at Cowes, renowned for its sailing regatta. We explore the lush New Forest stopping off at the pretty towns of Christchurch then Lyndhurst.
Osborne House & Cowes
We hop aboard the ferry for the short crossing to the Isle of Wight then continue to Osborne House, a sumptuous seaside palace set amidst lavish gardens. Don’t miss Victoria and Albert’s private quarters, the swish State Rooms and the Bathing Machine that preserved the Queens modesty. Later we visit to the seaport town of Cowes, a sophisticated little resort with a charming seafront and a pedestrianised shopping area with galleries and boutiques.
Christchurch & Lyndhurst
Traditional Christchurch is located on the shores of its own natural harbour and is renowned for its eleventh century, white-stone priory, which houses a museum. We continue to Lyndhurst, an historic town at the heart of the New Forest where you’ll find antique shops, welcoming tea rooms and ancient dwellings.
Portsmouth is a dynamic and vibrant waterfront city, known for its maritime heritage and home to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, where visitors can see the Mary Rose. Further highlights include the fantastic Gunwharf Quays boasting shops, restaurants & cafés as well as the amazing Emirates Spinnaker Tower.
