Discover the delights of the popular Isle of Wight, visiting the stunning Osborne House and enjoying a ride on the Isle of Wight steam railway.
Local departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then we board the ferry to the Isle of Wight and continue on to Warner Norton Grange for a four-night stay.
Day 2 Osborne House
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought the Osborne estate in 1845, and they created a private home here away from court life. For over 50 years, Victoria stayed here, from entertaining foreign royalty to finding solace after Albert's death in 1861. Victoria herself passed away at Osborne in 1901, and then King Edward VII gifted the estate to the nation.
Today, the English Heritage manages the property and has carried out much repair and preservation. Many of the rooms are still filled with original furniture and works of arts.
Day 3 Free Time or Island Tour
Visit the bird aviary, take up archery or swim a couple of lengths in the indoor pool – there's plenty to do at Warner Norton Grange. Perhaps you'd just like to relax in your chalet, or admire the views of the Solent.
Alternatively, you may wish to join our optional island tour, where we'll take in the pretty scenery and delightful towns that dot this charming isle.
Day 4 Isle of Wight Steam Railway
Today we will enjoy a unique view of some of the island's unspoilt countryside and quaint villages, as we take a journey on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Sit back in the beautifully restored carriages and watch the scenery roll by!
We continue on to visit the picture-postcard village of Godshill, full of pretty thatched cottages which are clustered around the quaint church.
We take the ferry back to the mainland and return home.
You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.
