Itinerary

Included Excursions

Dorchester Market and Weymouth (full day)
Our first excursion takes us to the charming county town of Dorchester, where we have time to browse the stalls of its traditional and charming market. There is a range of products on offer from 200 traders.

We continue to wander down the memory lane of seaside resorts with a visit to Weymouth, crowned with a bustling harbour and fine Georgian seafront. The resort boasts a long sandy beach peppered with candy-stripe kiosks, plus fantastic views across the bay taking in the World Heritage Jurassic coastline.

Hovercraft to Ryde, Isle of Wight (full day)
We travel by coach to the popular resort of Southsea, where we then take a memorable journey as foot passengers by hovercraft to the Isle of Wight. Easily the fastest Isle of Wight ferry service across the Solent, it takes just ten minutes as we ‘fly’ on a cushion of air!

We disembark in the seaside town of Ryde with its long stretch of golden sand and pretty esplanade. There is plenty of time to take a relaxing stroll along the famous pier (the oldest in England), admire the boats moored in the town’s harbour or explore the boutique shops, bars and restaurants before we head back, via hovercraft then coach, to the hotel.

Optional Excursion - Salisbury – £12pp (full day)
Join us on an optional excursion which takes us to Salisbury. Set in a quintessentially English landscape, this stunning city has a rich heritage with hundreds of buildings listed for their historical merit including the medieval cathedral which boasts the tallest spire in Britain. Explore the patchwork of streets which boast a picturesque jumble of architectural styles, ranging from medieval walls and half-timbered Tudor town houses to Georgian mansions and Victorian villas. There’s still time for a well-deserved rest at one of the many cosy tea rooms dotted along the side streets.
