A day out to the coast may be all you need for a short escape, and our day trips coming up soon have something for everyone. Take your pick from venturing further afield to Guernsey or exploring the iconic coastlines along the Jurassic Coast, to simply enjoying the sandy beaches of Dorset…
Guernsey – Wednesday 19th April 2017
Why not first treat yourself to some fantastic Duty Free shopping on board Condor’s ferry, before arriving at St Peter Port in Guernsey, one of the most unique Channel Islands. You might think you’re a world away from a city in the UK with stunning bays, cobbled streets and quaint shops making it feel more like you’re abroad. Approximately 3½ hours free time will be given to admire the sheer beauty of one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns.
Weymouth – Sunday 23rd April 2017
A seaside atmosphere abounds this favourite coastal destination. Take in the views of the spectacular Jurassic Coastline and walk along the esplanade, where its Georgian buildings make for a beautiful backdrop against the golden beaches.
Swanage and River Cruise – Thursday 4th May 2017
Departing from Poole for a return journey, this day trip will take you past the start of the Jurassic Heritage Coast, sailing past Old Harry Rocks and on past Ballard Down into Swanage Pier. Offering glorious views of the beach from Europe’s largest harbour, free time is also included at Swanage, a quaint seaside town with Victorian charm and a Blue Flag beach.
Eastbourne – Tuesday 13th June 2017
Unwind at this timeless English seaside town. Sheltered by the South Downs, it enjoys a milder climate, basking in sunnier weather than other mainland and exudes seaside charm. Victorian hotels, the charming Victorian pier and picturesque promenade run alongside the famous shingle beaches. Maybe visit the elegant gardens, or delve into its rich history at some of its museums.
