Itinerary

Day 1: Travelling across to the Isle of Wight on the ferry, we arrive at our hotel – said to have been built for one of Queen Victoria’s ladies in waiting. The family owned and run hotel is on an elevated position at the foot of Luccombe Downs offering lovely coastal and countryside views, and only a few minute’s walk from Shanklin Old Village. In addition to leisure facilities, the hotel has an indoor and outdoor swimming pool for you to enjoy.

Day 2: Visit Queen Victoria’s palatial holiday home – Osborne House. Take a tour of their private apartments, private beach and their children’s play cottage for an intimate glimpse of Royal family life in the 1800’s. Take a stroll through the beautiful terrace gardens which have an Italian style theme, inspired by Albert’s family home.

Day 3: Founded by Sir Harold Hillier in 1970, Ventnor Botanic Garden has a unique sub-tropical microclimate making it approximately 5 degrees warmer than the general British climate – making it Britain’s hottest garden, and is set in 22 acres, with over 6,000 species of plants, shrubs and champion trees. With many trails to follow and produce you can buy which is either grown in the garden or sourced locally, including jams, chutneys, cordials and even botanic craft beers!

Day 4: Take a trip on the multi award winning Isle of Wight Steam Railway, and step back to an era when steam power was king. Relax in the beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages, and enjoy a unique view of the Island’s unspoilt countryside. The sights and sounds of the hissing and puffing steam engine will leave you with enduring memories of a wonderful day out.

Day 5: Return to Waterside.
