This really is a very beautiful holiday island with everything to offer. A year upon year favourite destination with our clients that offers an extremely enjoyable break. Included is a ride on the famous Isle of Wight Steam Railway.
Another Fenn Holiday favourite! The 3 star Channel View Hotel is in a unique location occupying an elevated cliff-top position overlooking Shanklin Bay with its sandy beaches and safe bathing that the island is renowned for. The hotel has a swimming pool and each of the en-suite bedrooms have tea and coffee making facilities. A lift serves all floors.
Monday From you front door we join the Club Class coach for the drive to Southampton for the crossing to the Isle of Wight. This afternoon we continue to our 3 star hotel where we have time to settle in before dinner this evening.
Tuesday Today you will get your bearings on the island during a scenic tour around the south and west of the island with a visit to historic Yarmouth where we enjoy free time. After a good stay and time for lunch we drive to picturesque Calbourne, later retuning to the hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Wednesday Today we drive to the north of the island for a nostalgic ride on the Isle of Wight Steam Train. Take a ride behind a vintage steam locomotive and breathe in the evocative aromas of a real steam railway, while your eyes and ears thrill to the puffing and hissing of the steam engine. Settle back in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages and enjoy a unique view of some of the islandís unspoilt countryside. We then spend time in Ryde before returning to the hotel for dinner.
Thursday After breakfast we visit Osborne House, the much loved home of Queen Victoria and her family. We then have time at leisure before our final eveningís dinner is served at the hotel.
Friday After breakfast we catch the ferry and return to England, using the motorways to arrive in our home areas to be greeted by our awaiting taxis.
