Round Island Tour
A visit to the Isle of Wight wouldn't be complete without going 'Round the Island'. Our tour takes you round the traditional clockwise route with stops on the way. If you've never been to the Island before, this is a must day out. The route along the southern coast line of the Island is quite spectacular.
IOW Pearls & Botanic Garden
A leisurely start today heading along the coast to the Isle of Wight Pearl. A family owned and run business which has called the island home for almost 30 years. Dedicated to the art of pearl jewellery, their showroom offers unmissable views over the English Channel. There are many breath-taking views on the Isle of Wight, but Chilton Chine has a stunning natural beach not far from IOW Pearl on the southwest coast. Its sands feature natural green and red clay as well as ancient shells and fossils from the prehistoric era.
A short drive to Ventnor Botanic Garden - lying in the remarkable microclimate at the heart of the famous 'Undercliff.' This unique garden is protected from the cold northerly winds by chalk downs. Indeed, it holds the warmth from its southerly aspect so well that, combined with the moderating influence of the sea, frost is rarely known. When frost does occur it is usually of short duration and not great severity. With an average rainfall of 28 inches its climate is more akin to the Mediterranean. This enables a wide variety of plants considered too tender for much of mainland Britain to be grown. The Garden is unrivalled for its collections of subtropical plants grown unprotected out of doors.
Many of their plants are shown in representations of geographical regions, growing in association with each other as in the wild. Their aim to present an immersive experience where the visitor is transported to landscapes from around the world. Admission included.
Day 5 - After breakfast it's all aboard for the ferry to the mainland and onward to your home towns mid evening.
