Dorset boasts a stunning landscape of rolling hills, picturesque villages and beautiful Jurassic coastal scenery. As well as having an outstanding coastline with unique coves such as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, Dorset's inland scenery of the New Forest is equally inviting. The popular resort of Bournemouth and the harbour town of Poole are great bases from which to explore the area. A popular attraction is the scenic Swanage Railway offering magnificent views of the ruins of Corfe Castle.
Explore delightful Dorset by steam train and marvel at the Jurassic Coast from our boat trip along the shoreline. Enjoy Exbury Gardens, ride on the estate's 'Rhododendron Line' narrow-gauge steam railway and relax at our seafront hotel on Bournemouth's east cliff. Round off your holiday in great style with a day's adventure on the Isle of Wight..
Imagine a short break that combines the Swanage Autumn Steam Gala in delightful Dorset plus the amazing Isle of Wight 'Beer & Buses Festival', with 80 vintage buses shuttling between a similar number of real ale pubs on the island, plus Isle of Wight Steam, and a tour and tasting at the Ringwood Brewery. We hope this tour is as appealing to you as it is to us!
