Book Now

Our visit to the Portsmouth area offers something a little different as we head to Gosport, with its extensive waterfront, located on the shoreline of the Solent, directly opposite Portsmouth where we can climb inside a real submarine – HMS Alliance, Britain’s only remaining WW2 submarine which stands as a memorial to the 5,300 British submariners who have lost their lives in service.


We also visit the New Forest, once the royal hunting ground for William the Conqueror – Covering an area of 566 sq Km it is made up of vast tracts of unspoilt woodland, heathland and river valleys.

Discover the extraordinary life of a submariner first-hand at The Royal Navy Submarine Museum on the Gosport side of Portsmouth Harbour. The museum houses a unique collection of submarines as well as extensive exhibitions of Royal Navy submarine equipment, artefacts, information and personal accounts of submariners. Explore the depths of HMS Alliance and feel how crew members packed into its small spaces and hear from ex-submariners about how they lived and protected the country in such challenging conditions. Tonight, we enjoy dinner at the nearby Solent Hotel in Fareham.


A gentle excursion through the back roads and byways of the New Forest. Dotted with tiny villages and, roamed, at will, by deer, ponies, donkeys and pigs - there is nowhere else quite like it. Travelling via Burley, one of the prettiest New Forest villages, we continue to Lyndhurst in time for a lunch opportunity. The village of Lyndhurst, "Capital" of the New Forest, offers among other things, a museum in the New Forest visitor centre, shops, and the grave of the original Alice in Wonderland (Alice Liddell, later Hargreaves) in the churchyard. In the afternoon we continue our New Forest tour and visit Brockenhurst, the place where the North and South Weirs streams join, before returning home during the evening.
