The historic Dorset town is a firm favourite of ours with the fine Georgian seafront an impressive backdrop to the beautiful golden sandy beach.  With an award winning coastline, it is one of the most beautiful resorts in the UK, and is also one of the sunniest! If lazing by the beach isn’t your thing, then there is plenty more to do including shopping at the impressive new town centre complex, museums and the Sea Life Centre.


Day 1:

After you have joined the coach from your departure point we travel via a lunch stop to the Dorset Coast. Arriving mid afternoon, giving you time to settle into your room and also to visit the local shops before settling in for the evening to enjoy the hospitality of the hotel.

We take an easterly drive today and our visit will be in Bournemouth. With its lovely sandy beach, park and nearby shopping centre Bournemouth always guarantees a relaxing time. After free time we travel to Poole, dropping you off by Poole Pottery on the quayside. It is also only a short walk to the Dolphin Shopping Centre.
