Monday

Travel south to Dorset, arriving at our hotel late afternoon for our 4-night stay.

Tuesday

A morning scenic drive around the Isle of Portland, viewing the famous Portland Bill Lighthouse, and Portland Castle before visiting Weymouth - With its fine Georgian seafront, 3 miles of golden sands and its pretty harbour, Weymouth is always a firm favourite.

Wednesday

We visit the historic market town of Dorchester, birthplace of the 19th century novelist and poet Thomas Hardy and continue to nearby Athelhampton House - a quintessential English manor house. Discover the Tudor Great Hall at the heart of the house, with its linenfold panelling, heraldic stained glass and historic furnishings. There will be time to visit the gardens and, if you wish, take the short walk to the estate's St. Edward's Church.

Thursday

Today, we visit two very different attractions - We commence with a visit to Monkey World - a venue that assists governments around the world in stopping the smuggling of primates from the wild. At the Centre refugees of this illegal trade as well as those that have suffered abuse or neglect are rehabilitated into natural living groups. We continue to the nearby Bovington Tank Museum - a museum that brings the history of tanks and tank crew to life. Supported by the world's best collection of tanks & action-packed live displays, the centre is also the museum of the Royal Tank Regiment & Royal Armoured Corps.

Friday

Homeward bound, arriving home during the afternoon.
