Day 1 Making our way through Hampshire and the New Forest, we have a stop in Lyndhurst where you will be able to get lunch. We continue to our hotel in Bournemouth to be greeted with tea and biscuits.

Day 2 A day at leisure to relax in the hotel or explore Bournemouth, you could stroll in the gardens, visit the shops or visit the Russell Cotes Museum & Art Gallery, an exotic seaside villa, very close to our hotel on the cliffs overlooking the town. Alternatively, you could join your driver on a half-day excursion to Swanage via The Sandbanks.

Day 3 Today, an early start as we visit the Great Dorset Steam Fair, held in the showground near Blandford Forum in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside. There are around 200 working steam engines on show and 2000 other working exhibits, including a steam-driven funfair. Vintage, veteran and classic cars, lorries, military vehicles, tractors and motorcycles are shown as well as 500 trade stands, food stalls and live music.

Day 4 Departing mid-morning, we travel the short distance to Wimborne, before making our way back to the local area and meeting our taxis.
