PACKAGED ITINERARY

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Abbotsbury Swannery & Dorchester
This morning we visit the very unique Abbotsbury Swannery, the world’s only managed colony of nesting mute swans. Spread over 25 acres located on the dramatic Dorset coast, the Swannery was established by Benedictine Monks in 1040, and is now one of Dorset’s most popular wildlife sites. We spend the afternoon in Dorchester, the vibrant county town of Dorset, discovering its connection to Thomas Hardy and exploring its shops and interesting museums which include the Dorset County Museum and the Keep Military Museum.

Day 3 Weymouth
We spend a relaxing day in Weymouth, one of the UK’s most beautiful seaside resorts with a fine Georgian seafront, esplanade and impressive golden sands. Take a stroll
around the picturesque old harbour area and visit Brewer’s Quay which is full of arts, crafts and antique shops, visit the Sealife Centre or just sit and relax, enjoying the
views and watching the world go by.

Day 4 Poole Harbour & Swanage Steam Railway
This morning, we make our way to Poole Harbour to embark on a 1 hour boat cruise down the Jurassic coast to the Victorian pier and the beautiful traditional seaside resort of Swanage. We spend time here before embarking on a six mile scenic journey with the award winning Swanage Steam Railway, through picturesque Purbeck to idyllic Corfe Castle Village, where we spend time exploring the village before returning by train to Swanage and sailing back to Poole.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
