We bring in the New Year on the summit of the Isle of Portland, with spectacular panoramic sea and coastal views. Our hotel promises excellent evenings of dancing and entertainment and during our tour we visit Bournemouth, Weymouth, Dorchester, Sidmouth and have a visit to the panto on New Year’s Day.
Day 1 We set off this morning travelling through the New Forest to Bournemouth, where there will be time to have some lunch. We continue to our hotel where we are greeted with tea and cake in the coffee shop overlooking the coastal views. Dinner is taken in the Bistro followed by music and a “Dessert Cocktail” in the bar.
Day 2 New Year’s Eve - After a delicious Dorset Breakfast we drive into Weymouth, with its pretty harbour and many cafés and shopping opportunities. In the afternoon we have tickets to the pantomime at the Weymouth Pavilion. This evening we begin with Bucks Fizz, before enjoying a four-course Gala Dinner followed by music and dancing to bring in the New Year!
Day 3 New Year’s Day - Happy New Year! We begin 2024 with a leisurely breakfast before we travel to the Regency town of Sidmouth. We return to our hotel mid-afternoon. Dinner tonight has a Dorset theme, followed by a quiz, comedy, magic and prize bingo.
Day 4 After another lovely Dorset Breakfast, we make our way to Dorchester for some free time among the alleys and precincts that make up the centre. We then continue back to the local area to meet our taxis.
