Staying at The Warner Bembridge Coast Hotel
5 DAYS | 16th August 2021
The Isle of Wight is one of the most picturesque of Britain’s smaller islands, just five miles from the south coast and a popular holiday destination. The island contains a wonderful mixture of bustling resorts, glorious countryside, small quaint villages, and a stunning coastline.
This year our tour is based at The Warner Bembridge Coast Hotel. A modern hotel, its famously landscaped Spanish Gardens and sea views together with its location make it the ideal place from which to explore the Isle of Wight. Boasting a stylish dining room and bar, the entertaining lounge is where you can enjoy a fun filled evening with fabulous team shows, comedians and even a resident band. There are many facilities to enjoy including a pool, sauna and steam room. All bedrooms offer en-suite facilities with TV, courtesy tea trays and WiFi.
We depart Macclesfield calling for coffee and lunch en-route to Portsmouth where we board the ferry for our crossing to the Isle of Wight. We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.
Today we will enjoy a full day tour of the Island. We will see the wonderful beaches and dramatic cliff faces that have drawn tourists to the Isle of Wight since the Victorian Era. We will have time to visit the famous Needles and some of the Island’s towns stopping for coffee and lunch throughout our day; this really is the ideal and most leisurely way to explore the Island.
With a free day for you to spend as you please, why not take advantage of the many facilities available at the hotel? Alternatively, use the local bus to visit Sandown with its traditional British seafront and pier. You could also head to Ryde where you could board the steam railway for a ride through the picturesque countryside. The choice is yours!
A second day for you to spend as you wish. Why not relax in the hotel pool or alternatively join the coach as it heads first to Whippenham Church and then Osbourne House. Whippingham Church has been a place of worship since 1854 and was frequented by Queen Victoria when in residence on the Isle of Wight. We then continue to Osborne House; the peaceful rural retreat of both Queen Victoria and her family, they spent some of their happiest times here. (English Heritage members free, non-members entrance £15.50 approx.).
We depart after breakfast and take the ferry crossing back to the mainland, where we join the motorway network and head north. We stop for lunch en-route and aim to arrive in Macclesfield early evening.
