On this day trip to the beautiful “diamond of the south” you will visit some of the beautiful villages that the Isle of Wight has to offer such as Godshill and the seaside village of Shanklin. This tour includes luxury coach travel, return ferry crossing, plenty of free time to explore the enchanting villages with wonderful coastal views and the services of a tour manager. This is definitely a day out to remember.
After central London pickups, depart for Southampton for our 10am ferry crossing. Upon arrival to East Cowes, you will travel to the first stop, Godshill. Here you will have free time to explore the town. There is plenty to do in Godshill, from visiting the famous model village to the many quant tea rooms. The village also holds a wide range of shops offering local crafts and produce, or perhaps you may enjoy taking a short but steep climb up to the All Saints Church which overlooks the village from a hill.
Next, take a short drive to Shanklin where you will, again, have free time to discover this lovely seaside village. You could take a stroll through Shanklin Chine, a winding woodland with many rare plants, waterfalls and wildlife, or maybe go for a paddle on Shanklin Beach. Perhaps you could take a look in the unique and quirky shops in the Old Village or even take in the stunning views across the Bay from the cliff path.
After a full day in the beautiful Isle of Wight, depart for London for a 5:30pm return ferry crossing and should arrive back in central London for approximately 9pm.
