EXCURSION 1.Today we go on an Island Tour, starting with the attractive village
of Godshill with its many thatched cottages. Then onto Yarmouth, a busting town
with a stunning castle and a lovely natural harbour. Alum Bay sits on the west of
the Island, where the mainly shingle beach is framed by iconic chalk stalks
known as The Needles with 21 different shades, with a dramatic view of the chalk
lines creating a scenic beautiful view that is not seen anywhere.
EXCURSION 2.The town of Cowes, sitting in the north of the Island, is split into two
by the mouth of the River Medina. Both sides are steeped in maritime heritage, with
large marinas making them popular for sailing ships and yachts. We will then call into
Osborne House, the residence of Queen Victoria (admission included). During your visit,
you can see the extravagant Durbar Room, or the extensive grounds with stunning views
across The Solent.
