Dorset Coast And Country - Grand Uk Gold
5 Days | Half Board | by Coach
Highlights: New Forest, Salisbury, Shaftesbury, Wimborne Minster, Poole, Poole Harbour Cruise
Beautifully built amid the pinewoods, Bournemouth is so much more than just a seaside resort and an impressive array of attractions, it is one of the premier holiday centres in the country.
There are two piers, two thousand acres of parks and gardens, seven miles of clean golden beaches, traffic free shopping areas, regular military band concerts, star-studded evening entertainment and, of course, the beautiful Dorset coast and countryside is close by too.
Benefitting from not only the extra benefits you can enjoy on Gold Holidays, but also a 99p bar offer!*
*From 6pm-9pm, conditions apply.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
FULL DAY: This marvellous full day excursion heads off via the back roads and lanes of the New Forest, with its famous ponies and elusive deer, to Lyndhurst. Here there is time to browse through the many antique shops before continuing on to Salisbury. Famous for its magnificent Gothic Cathedral and tallest spire in England, the grid-like streets, with their black and white half-timbered houses, are a joy to explore.
FULL DAY: Heading into the heart of Dorset, across the rolling countryside of Cranborne Chase we arrive in Shaftesbury. This ancient former hill-top stronghold was founded by Alfred the Great, and home to famous Gold Hill, whose curving cobbled street is one of the most photographed and recognisable scenes in Britain. This afternoon we return to historic Wimborne Minster, with its gracious Minster Church and ancient heritage.
HALF DAY: Today we start at Poole where we include a harbour cruise before enjoying free time in the resort itself. This lovely town combines as a ferry port and departure point for the National Trust’s Brownsea Island, with its role as an affluent residential town and holiday centre. The quay is a delight to explore and a visit to the Poole Maritime Museum is well worthwhile.
8 DAY HOLIDAY BONUS!
FULL DAY: As an added bonus on 8 day holidays, you’ll also enjoy an extra full day excursion. We begin with the drive to the Isle of Purbeck and the resort of Swanage. Here we include a ride on the famous Swanage Railway past the local landmark of Corfe Castle. In the afternoon we head towards the famous Jurassic Coast and take time to visit West Lulworth and Lulworth Cove, where there is the opportunity to walk down to the sea to admire the views.
