9 Day Coach Holiday

With its golden beaches, wildlife habitats, and thatch-roofed villages, it’s easy to see why the Isle of Wight is dubbed ‘England in miniature’ and is such a huge magnet for holidaymakers. The island’s landmark Needles feature a row of three stacks of chalk that rise thirty metres from the sea. Catch the chairlift to gently glide from Alum Bay Cliff down to the beach as you view this world famous attraction or get even closer with a boat ride. Perhaps head to the island’s steam railway to step back to a bygone era, relaxing aboard a nostalgic carriage, thrilling to the sounds of a powerful engine as you trundle through beautiful countryside. Elsewhere, dinosaur remains can be found in Compton Bay, the local museum exhibits relics from the Ice Age, and centuries of history can be uncovered at Carisbrooke Castle. Our holiday is based in Shanklin, a Victorian resort set against sandstone cliffs with a sandy beach flanked by beach huts. Its esplanade bustles with seaside amusements and tearooms. Enjoy a quieter time amid unique plants at Shanklin Chine or hop aboard the cliff lift to reach the Old Village with its enchanting stone cottages.

Your Excursions

Island Highlights Guided Tour 
Enjoy the views as we showcase the picture postcard places that make this stunning island so irresistible such as pretty Yarmouth, colourful Alum Bay and the iconic Needles. 
Godshill & Newport 
Feast your eyes on chocolate-box Godshill, regarded as the prettiest place on the isle. We continue to the island capital of Newport, a historic town where the focal point is two elegant squares flanked by Georgian and Victorian architecture. The Museum of Island History, Roman Villa and the Quay Arts Centre are all within walking distance of its hub. 
Ryde 
Explore traditional Ryde where you’ll find a pleasant promenade, pleasure pier and an award winning beach. With its well-established shopping areas, the town is arguably the best place on the island for some retail therapy. 
Osborne House 
Queen Victoria’s sumptuous seaside palace rests amid breathtaking, landscaped gardens – little wonder her majesty remarked upon her first visit that it was ‘impossible to imagine a prettier spot’. Our visit allows access to Victoria and Albert’s private quarters, the lavish State Rooms and the Bathing Machine that preserved the queen’s modesty. (9 day holidays only).
