Coach Itinerary

Day 1

After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.

Day 2 - Island Highlights

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 island's oldest architecture, including a 16th-century castle. We continue to Newport, regarded as the capital of the Isle of Wight, with a charming quayside and selection of speciality shops.

 

Day 3 - Ryde

We spend some time 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.

 

Day 4 - Cowes

Today we venture to Cowes, a vibrant and sophisticated resort, home to the world-famous regatta. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the seafront, browse the boutique shops, or admire the town’s many ornate buildings, which date from Queen Victoria’s time, in the style popularised by Prince Albert. We then journey back to the hotel.

 

Day 5

After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head home.
