Your Excursions

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.

7 Day Holiday Bonus!

Full day

As an added bonus on 7 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.
