Itinerary

Itinerary

Osborne House & Cowes (full day)

We have the chance to explore Queen Victoria’s one-time residence on the island, Osborne House. Built as a holiday home and rural retreat in the late 1840s, the Italianate palace reflects Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s tastes and boasts spectacular views across the Solent. It is no wonder that Victoria herself once said, ‘it’s impossible to imagine a prettier spot.’ Here we take an intimate glimpse of royal family life as we wander through the magnificent Royal Apartments as well as the walled gardens and grounds where we find the charming Swiss Cottage, used by the royal children to learn household management.

We then head to Cowes, a vibrant and sophisticated resort home to the world-famous regatta that swells the local population each August. 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.

Optional Excursion

Alum Bay, Ventnor & Sandown – £14pp (half day)

Join us on an optional excursion to some of the highlights of the island, including the seaside resort of Alum Bay with its colourful sands, the pretty resort of Ventnor and Sandown.

Shanklin

Shanklin

Shanklin is a stunning village renowned for its splendid esplanade, historic attractions and a host of traditional seaside fun. There’s plenty to do, from taking a stroll along the golden blue flag beaches to discovering the beauty of Shanklin Chine – the Isle of Wight’s oldest visitor attraction filled with rare plants, wildlife and enchanting waterfalls.
