Christmas Eve – Island Highlights Tour

Our fantastic Island Highlights tour takes in this unique island’s many famous sights. After Ventnor, a pretty resort built on a series of terraces, we make for Alum Bay. Here we can admire the multi-coloured cliffs and famous chalky outcrop The Needles. Next is the historic port town of Yarmouth which contains some of the oldest architecture on the island including a 16th-century castle. We continue on to Newport, regarded as the capital of the Isle of Wight, with a historic quayside and selection of specialty shops. We return to the hotel for an afternoon of entertainment plus mulled wine and mince pies.

Christmas Day

Christmas Dayis a wonderful day of leisure at our hotel where we indulge in a Christmas lunch with all the trimmings and delightful afternoon entertainment, followed by a buffet served in the evening.


Boxing Day – Ryde & Cowes

For today’s half-day excursion we spend some time at leisure in Ryde with its long stretch of golden sand, pretty esplanade, marina and beautiful gardens. Take a stroll along the famous 19th-century pier, the oldest in England, or admire the many boats moored in the town’s busy harbour. We then head to Cowes, a vibrant and sophisticated resort home to the world-famous regatta. Enjoy a stroll along the seafront, browse the boutique shops, or admire many of the town’s ornate buildings which date from Queen Victoria’s time, in the style popularised by Prince Albert. Back at the hotel this afternoon, we enjoy some more entertainment.
