Day 4 - Portsmouth
Head for the coast today and the historic city of Portsmouth, with its rich naval history that continues to this day in its role as a key port for the Royal Navy. The Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth is home to some of the most notable ships in our history. You can set foot on HMS Victory, the flagship for Admiral Horatio Nelson during the Battle of Trafalgar, and see the remains of the Mary Rose, King Henry VIII’s warship which infamously sank on its maiden voyage and which was recovered from the sea bed in those famous scenes of the early 80’s.
After exploring the Dockyard we’ve included a group visit to the Spinnaker Tower which dominates Portsmouth’s skyline and on a clear day affords views out across the Solent, the Isle of Wight and Hampshire. The tower's high speed lift will whisk you from sea level to the viewing deck, 100 metres up where you can take in those views and gaze out across the city.
Day 5 - Free day to enjoy at your leisure
Day 6 - Cross the Solent to the Isle of Wight
Leave Winchester Morn Hill Club Campsite this morning and head to the ferry port to travel across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and our Southland Club Campsite, located in the island’s countryside a short drive from the seaside town of Sandown.
