ISLE OF WIGHT TOUR - 15th - 17th SEPTEMBER 2018 (Two nights)


We thought it would be nice to arrange another Isle of Wight tour again for 2018 so here are our initial suggestions. If you would like to come along as a member please contact Please note that numbers will be limited.


During each day we will arrange excursions for members at some of the IOW main attractions (such as Osborne House etc) which will be at extra cost.


We will be getting the 10am ferry from Portsmouth to Fishbourne on the Saturday morning and then a return ferry crossing from Fishbourne to Portsmouth at 4pm on the Monday, that way giving us 3 full days to enjoy the island. We have done a couple of tours already to the island and we have always had a great time.
