Bournemouth, the Isle of Purbeck and the New Forest have a wide variety of excursion possibilities. One idea for an itinerary is shown here but we will be happy to tailor the tour to meet your specific requirements. We are pleased to offer a choice of hotels to what is, one of the most popular destinations for coach tours.
Beaulieu • Swanage Railway • Poole Harbour • New Forest • Dorset Heritage Coast
Day 1 Travel to the hotel in Bournemouth. We recommend a stop in Salisbury, where the magnificent Cathedral has Britain's tallest spire. Also nearby is the ancient monument of Stonehenge.
Day 2 Excursion to the New Forest for a visit to Beaulieu Estate, home to the world famous National Motor Museum. Also included is entrance to Palace House and Gardens, the 13th century abbey and Monastic Life exhibition. With so much to see and do, a full day can be easily spent at Beaulieu.
Day 3 Spend today at leisure relaxing in the hotel and visiting the popular seaside town of Bournemouth. Take time to enjoy the 7 miles of splendid golden beaches or browse in the wide variety of shops in the town centre. For the more active, why not enjoy a pier to pier walk starting at Boscombe Pier and wandering along the promenade to Bournemouth Pier?
Day 4 Travel to Poole Harbour this morning for a boat trip along the splendid Dorset Heritage Coast to the resort of Swanage. Spend time in the Victorian town before boarding the steam train for a nostalgic journey through six miles of magnificent Purbeck countryside to Norden to rejoin the coach. We can include a round trip and coach parking in Poole if the coach driver needs to accompany the group.
Day 5 Homeward journey via Winchester.
