Day 1: Following your home taxi collection we make our way to the ferry port in Portsmouth, to board the ferry to the Isle of Wight. Upon arrival we make the short journey to the Trouville hotel in Sandown, for our four night stay on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.
Day 2: Today we are joined by a professional guide for a coach tour around the island. Littered with picturesque villages, bustling towns and historic delights, your guide will provide you with an insight into the rich historical heritage of the island.
Day 3: After breakfast, we make our way to Osborne House. Osborne House gives you a unique glimpse into the cherished home and private lives of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their nine children. The remainder of the day will be at leisure in Sandown. Take a stroll along the Esplanade, enjoy a leisurely journey on the island train that travels between Sandown & Shanklin, unwind in one of the tea rooms or enjoy a glass of Cider in one of the traditional pubs.
Day 4: This morning we begin our day with a visit to Ryde. The island’s largest town with an elegant esplanade, attractive Georgian and Victorian buildings, and a half mile long pier. Later we visit Rosemary’s vineyard, one of the largest producers of English wine. The vineyard covers around 30 acres and all the English wine, liqueurs, juices and ciders are produced from grapes and apples grown on the estate.
Day 5: We depart Fishbourne onboard the mid-morning ferry to Portsmouth. We continue our journey to Norfolk, where our door to door service will be waiting to return you home.
