We again offer a quality tour to beautiful Hampshire, with its unique mixture of rolling hills, chalk streams, bustling market towns and sleepy villages, Hampshire's countryside epitomises traditional English charm. We include a leisurely canal ride, a ride on the famous Watercress Line and views from the Spinnaker Tower.
The 4 star Solent hotel is ideally located between Southampton and Portsmouth. The hotel has an indoor swimming pool and spa facilities, including a whirlpool and sauna. Each of the en-suite bedrooms have tea and coffee making facilities and there is lift to all floors.
Monday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive south to our holiday hotel. Upon arrival there will be time to settle in and relax before dinner.
Tuesday After a leisurely breakfast we head out to enjoy some scenery before we board a traditional style narrow boat on the Basingstoke Canal. Next we continue to ‘Milestones’, an interesting museum often described as ‘the outdoor museum that’s indoors!’ Wander through the old cobbled streets and explore life in Hampshire in the past. We return to the hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Wednesday This morning we travel to Alton where we join the Mid Hants Railway ‘Watercress Line’ for a 10 mile journey over the ‘Hampshire Alps’ to Alresford. This is the home of the Hampshire Watercress Industry from which the line takes its name, continuing on to Winchester ancient capital of England and home to a magnificent cathedral, we enjoy the afternoon at leisure.
Thursday Today we visit the naval city of Portsmouth. Ideally situated, Portsmouth is the UK’s only island city. Here, we include a visit to the Spinnaker Tower for fabulous views from 328ft high. For those brave enough, why not walk on the glass floor! Later we enjoy free time in the city with chance to explore and obtain lunch before returning to the hotel.
Friday After breakfast we bid farewell to our hosts at the Solent Hotel, and make our way back to our home area.
