Isle of Wight A Taste of Christmas

“Banish those winter blues and experience this ‘Turkey & Tinsel’ with a difference at the Trouville Hotel in Sandown. Enjoy four nights of early festive fun with a mock Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day & New Year.”

Day 1

Travel to Portsmouth for lunch to be purchased before boarding the ferry and continuing to our hotel. Enjoy a cup of tea/ coffee and mince pie on arrival with time to relax before our evening meal and entertainment.

D

Day 2

Visit Newport, the principal town of the Isle of Wight, which is located in the centre of the Island and often referred to as its capital. After lunch has been purchased, we visit Rosemary Vineyards, set amongst beautiful views. Enjoy a tour around the winery, see the different equipment that they use and their ‘Vine to Wine’ film. Taste a sample of their quality wines, juices, liqueurs, and cider and browse the Vineyard shop. Afterwards we travel a short distance to Ryde; arguably the best place on the Isle of Wight to indulge in a bit of retail therapy! Today is ‘Christmas Day’ so there is a wine reception before our traditional Christmas dinner at the hotel. Enjoy a visit from Santa followed by a night of entertainment.

B, D

Day 3

Spend the morning at leisure in Sandown. Walk along the promenade or visit the small array of shops before we visit nearby Shanklin to purchase lunch and look around one of the prettiest villages the Isle of Wight has to offer.

B, D

Day 4

Visit the quintessential English village of Godshill, with its charming thatched-roofed cottages, medieval church and tearooms. Afterwards we take the scenic coastal road to the Isle of Wight Pearl. This historic Brighstone venue is not only home to an unmissable collection of pearl jewellery, but there are spectacular cliff-top views over the English Channel, a butterfly meadow, and a café where we can purchase lunch with views out to sea! Return to the hotel for ‘New Year’s Eve’ – celebrate with a fabulous night of entertainment after our candlelit dinner.

B, D

Day 5

After breakfast we make our way to Fishbourne to catch our return ferry back to the mainland. We make a suitable stop for lunch to be purchased before we return home.
