DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We travel to Southampton for our ferry sailing over to East Cowes. Our coach will then take us to The Royal Pier Hotel in Sandown.
Day 2 – We’ll spend the morning in Ryde. As the largest town on the Isle of Wight, it has a great set of shopping streets, perfect for those last-minute stocking fillers or some retail therapy! We then visit Cowes, home to lots of pretty cafés, bars, shops and galleries.
Day 3 – Celebrate Christmas Day at leisure in The Royal Pier, one of Sandown’s finest hotels – today there will be a full board meal package included! Situated on the seafront, head out to the beach for a refreshing walk before kicking off the fun festivities. Or, with an indoor heated swimming pool and 2 bars at the hotel, enjoy a relaxing day (with no washing up).
Day 4 – Escape the crowds this Boxing Day, with visits to Godshill and Ventnor. One of the most photographed destinations on the Isle of Wight, Godshill is a pretty village with thatched-roofed cottages home to a range of shops selling local produce, such as ciders, pickles and biscuits. Later, we take you to Ventnor, perhaps visit the Winter Gardens, overlooking the seafront it is home to a variety of entertainment and bars.
Day 5 – After breakfast we visit Newport for free time. Considered to be the Island’s capital, here you can find high-street shops as well as local boutiques and craft shops.
Day 6 – After a fantastic stay, we begin our return journey home.
