Our packaged tour includes visits to Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway, Buckler’s Hard, Mottisfont and the coastal town of Lymington. PACKAGED ITINERARY Day 1 Arrival This morning, we visit the nearby Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway, created by the famous Rothschild family and home to a host of exotic plants benefitting from the unique micro-climate. We are greeted by a senior staff member for a talk on the history of the gardens and the family that inspired their creation. We enjoy a journey on the steam railway that travels around the gardens together, with time here for lunch before returning to our hotel in the afternoon.

The gardens are a feast for the senses all year round, with a stunning rose garden and a world-famous collection of old-fashioned roses that flower once a year in June being a highlight. We visit Salisbury this afternoon, with free time to explore this medieval city’s historic streets and alleyways, half-timbered buildings and magnificent cathedral, boasting the tallest spire in the UK.
