Visit to the Isle of Wight
Join us for an Isle of Wight break in June/July 2019 - a very long
weekend of five days exploring some well known sights but also
going off the beaten track. The tour includes executive coaching
throughout, ferry crossings, dinner, bed and breakfast at a sought
after beach front hotel, two days with an erudite and entertaining
Blue Badge Guide and all admissions.
You could be forgiven for thinking that the very spirit of old
England has been distilled into this diamond shaped island set
in a sparkling sea. We’ll be staying at the 3* Trouville Hotel facing
Sandown’s golden beach and just a two minute walk from the pier.
This popular front line hotel has 88 rooms over four floors and has
been recently refurbished. It has the largest ballroom on the Island
where you will find evening entertainments. The sightseeing
programme is designed to be comfortable for anyone who hasn’t
been too lucky in the hips and knees lottery. We enjoy two of the
Island’s most famous attractions - Osborne House and the Haven
Street Steam Railway but we also Dimbola Lodge the home of the
pioneering Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron and
the newly opened Farringford House, beloved Island retreat of her
friend and subject, Alfred, Lord Tennyson. There will be some free
time in yachty Cowes with a visit to the quirky Max Aitken Museum
housed in an 18th century sail-maker’s loft.
This four night break is being organised by Linda Drabble
for the Arts Society Uckfield Lewes and Newick in partnership with City & Village Tours.
