Hampshire is the perfect blend of city, coast and country and is blessed with the natural beauty of two National Parks, a thriving culture, history and heritage. The beautiful city of Winchester is the ancient capital of England and for centuries venerated by tourists as the legendary Camelot due to the supposed location of the ‘Round Table’ in the Great Hall located here. With its magnificent cathedral, award winning restaurants and array of independent shops, the city is surrounded by rolling countryside and pretty Hampshire villages.

 

New for 2019, our base is the superb WINCHESTER ROYAL HOTEL which is ideally situated in the heart of the city just a short walk from the cathedral. Dating from the 16th century and once a former Bishop’s Palace, the hotel features a restaurant and bar/lounge which overlook the terrace and gardens. All of the well appointed en suite bedrooms have tv, telephone, iron/ironing board, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.

BRIEF ITINERARY

Monday 16th September
Departing Newark, we principally utilise the motorway system, making an extended break in beautiful Henley on Thames – a 13th century market town situated as its name suggests, on the banks of the River Thames. After free time here for lunch/sightseeing we continue so to our base in Winchester.

Monday 17th – Thursday 19th September
Scheduled excursions during our stay will include the following:
• Half day tour including a ride aboard the Mid Hants Steam Railway (affectionately known as the Watercress Line) - a scenic 10 mile journey which passes through Four Marks, the highest station above sea level in Southern England. On our return to Winchester there will be free time to explore this lovely city at your leisure.
• Full day tour calling at the the historic shipbuilding village of Buckler’s Hard in the New Forest where we take a step back in time to the 18th century. Explore the Maritime Museum and discover the inside of a shipwright’s cottage to find out how shipbuilding residents would have lived and worked in this picturesque village. Our day includes a scenic 30 minute cruise along the tranquil Beaulieu River.
• Full day tour via the scenic New Forest to the pretty Georgian town of Lymington. Famous for its sailing history, there are two large marinas filled with fishing boats and yachts and the town’s narrow streets are lined with pretty period cottages and houses, along with many cafes and restaurants.

Friday 20th September
Departing after a leisurely breakfast, we return via an extended lunch/sightseeing break in Windsor before arriving back in Newark for approximately teatime.
