A long established, favourite destination with our clients, Bournemouth is renowned as one of our more stylish resorts, it boasts spectacular coastal views including the secret Chines which were used by smugglers to conceal their beauty in days gone by; it is clean, fresh and sophisticated, yet remains quite unspoilt in spite of its popularity. There are seven miles of golden beaches, parks, gardens and woodlands to explore as well as entertainment in the form of shows, plays and concerts. It is the perfect place to holiday!
The three star Suncliff Hotel stands on Bournemouth’s East Cliff with panoramic views out to sea, yet just a short walk from the town centre. Hotel facilities include indoor swimming pool, on-site traditional English pub .This hotel does have a lift. The hotel will provide free drinks that will be available at the bar between 6pm and 9pm each evening.
Monday Collected from your front door to be taken to the waiting Club Class coach we are soon heading south to make a stop in the famed horse racing town of Newbury. Then on over the rolling Downs to Bournemouth arriving mid afternoon at our hotel, where tea and coffee will be served on arrival.
Tuesday Leaving the hotel we have an excursion to the Isle of Purbeck and Swanage. We drive to Norden where we join the Swanage Railway for a delightful ride, passing through Corfe Castle on the way. There is time to explore Swanage and maybe take a stroll along the seafront, and to obtain lunch before we re-join the coach and make our way to Poole. We have time to explore harbour side, Poole Pottery and the nearby shops before we return to the hotel with time to relax before dinner this evening.
Wednesday This morning we include a visit to Compton Acres before the rest of the day is spent at leisure in Bournemouth. Why not walk along Bournemouth Pier to the beach, take advantage of the hotels facilities, visit the cat café or just sit and watch the world go by.
Thursday After another fine breakfast set off for a pleasant morning drive into the New Forest, an enchanting expanse of ancient trees, heathland and woodland wildlife. We visit Lyndhurst and enjoy brandy coffees on board the coach then on to Beaulieu. With a stately home, a world famous motor museum and a 13th century abbey surrounded by picturesque gardens, there are over 800 years of heritage to enjoy. Our return includes views of the Isle of Wight as we take the coastal road back to Bournemouth.
Friday We depart our hotel after breakfast for the homeward journey. We drive To Salisbury to spend some time in the historic city that is dominated by the spire of its magnificent cathedral then on to view Stonehenge before joining the route of our outward journey at Oxford, arriving in our home area late-afternoon.
