What you'll be doing

Check-in at our hotel. When evening comes, we can enjoy a welcome drink with other Solos guests before dinner in the hotel restaurant.
  • Dinner Included

Jurassic Coast & Swanage

After breakfast we head to Poole Harbour to embark on our boat trip to Swanage. We will cruise around the eastern tip of the spectacular Jurassic Coast with live commentary before disembarking in picturesque Swanage. We then take a step back in time and take our seats on the steam train that takes us from Swanage to Corfe. Once in Corfe you will have plenty of time to visit Corfe Castle or enjoy the sights from one of the old pubs and cafes in the village. Our return steam train journey will take us back to Swanage for some time to explore before our cruise back to Poole Harbour. We then transfer back to our hotel where we’ll meet up in the evening for dinner.

Russell Cotes House, Gallery & Gardens

This morning we will cross the road from our hotel to visit the Russell Cotes museum. The Russell Cotes house was one of the last Victorian houses to be built in England and is a fine example of buildings of this period. Our visit includes time to wander the rooms of the main house and you will also be able to visit the art gallery and gardens which still house the original Victorian stone grotto and fountain along with the Japanese garden with gold-fish ponds, bridges and fountain. After our morning spent at Russell Cotes, the afternoon is at leisure. Maybe take a walk along the beach or discover the traditional Bournemouth pier, seaside shops and cafes or perhaps just enjoy the facilities of our hotel. In the evening we will meet up for dinner.
