Enjoy a winter retreat on the beautiful south coast with this new Great Break to Bournemouth. Based at the Suncliff Hotel, located on the town’s prestigious east cliff overlooking miles of clean blue flag beaches. The highlight of our tour will be a visit to the Isle of Wight where we include a visit to Osborne House. It’s hard to imagine a house more suited to a celebration of Christmas Victorian-style than Osborne, and it becomes a festive sight every winter as we step back in time to another era.

Departing Henley we journey south to Bournemouth, making appropriate comfort breaks en-route. On arrival at our hotel we will enjoy time at leisure before dinner.


After breakfast join us on a scenic excursion to the New Forest, King Henry VIII's favourite haunt, where we'll discover centuries old villages, ancient woods, thatched cottages, deer and ponies - all combine to create a unique atmosphere.


Today we visit Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. The former summer home of Queen Victoria and her family will be transformed into a winter wonderland as it becomes dressed for Christmas with sparkling trees and decorations in the style of its heyday. Queen Victoria loved Osborne House, and much of it is just as it was when it was a private home for a royal family. Visitors can still see the queen's private rooms, the stunning grounds and the nursery where she raised her nine children.


Departing after breakfast we visit Christchurch. Delightfully set on the mouth of the Rivers Stour and Avon, Christchurch and its harbour offer a tranquil retreat. Stroll the river banks with the ancient Priory, peruse the historic high street shops and galleries, or enjoy a tea or cheeky glass of wine at one of the designer bistro cafes. We return home during the mid-afternoon.
