Where better to welcome in the New Year than on the much-loved Isle of Wight. With over half the island being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with award winning beaches, spectacular scenery and rich royal heritage it will be the perfect backdrop to welcome in the New Year.
Monday - This morning we collect you from your local pick up point travelling down to Portsmouth for our crossing to the Isle of Wight. We will arrive in the afternoon at the Royal Esplanade Hotel where we will be greeted with tea and coffee on arrival before some time to settle in ahead of dinner and entertainment.
Tuesday New Year’s Eve – This morning we board the coach for a circular tour of the island, which boasts 60 miles of spectacular coastlines and stunning scenery, affording plenty of magnificent views. We start our day by making our way to the historic port town of Yarmouth which is home to the oldest architecture on the island, including a 16th century castle and a grade 2 listed pier. We continue on to The Needles Park which boasts fabulous ocean views and is home to the iconic chairlift, which operates from the cliff top at Alum Bay down to the beach below where we can see the Needles Rocks and coloured sands. We then continue
our journey to St Catherine’s Lighthouse – the Isle of Wight’s most famous landmark. This evening there will be a Gala Dinner, followed by evening entertainment and dancing. To welcome in the New Year there will be champagne at midnight.
Wednesday New Year’s Day – After a leisurely breakfast this morning you have the rest of the day to relax, so you may wish to explore Ryde by taking a stroll around the harbour or down the seafront to clear any fuzzy heads.
Thursday - This morning we say farewell to Ryde as we head back to Fishbourne for our crossing to Portsmouth, returning to Wiltshire late afternoon.
