Bournemouth is superbly situated on the sunny south coast on top of spectacular cliffs which look down upon miles of golden sand. It is probably Britain's most international resort with many visitors from the Continent providing an interesting sprinkling of foreign tongues as one strolls through the splendid gardens or browses through the outstanding selection of shops. The town is full of flowers and there are beautifully manicured parks and gardens. The delightful 'chines', small valleys in the cliffs, offer shady groves leading to the shore. The Lower Gardens and Central Gardens in particular provide a lush green contrast to the nearby beach. There are many outstanding attractions including museums, an art gallery, two piers and a wealth of evening entertainment ranging from classical music to top name summer shows.
TOUR OPERATES SUNDAY TO SATURDAY
Full Day Excursion to Weymouth and Portland
We travel to Weymouth to spend the day in this delightful Dorset resort. Weymouth boasts splendid beaches, a busy harbour and many narrow shopping streets as well as a Tudor fort and a nature reserve. The view of Chesil Beach from Portland is quite remarkable.
Full Day Excursion to Salisbury and Shaftesbury
Salisbury's history dates back to the nearby Iron Age fort, but it is best known for having the tallest cathedral spire in England along with a superbly well preserved medieval town plan with many wooden buildings. We then journey past the ancient and mystical Stonehenge on our way to Shaftesbury, a famously picturesque village.
Full Day Excursion to Lyndhurst and Beaulieu
A day in the New Forest, an area of beautiful unspoilt countryside, much of it woodland, with its famous wild ponies. Beaulieu is a fantastic day out for everyone, with Palace House, Abbey, National Motor Museum and gardens which stretch down to the river's edge (entrance included in the tour cost)
