Popular Back-Roads Itinerary

DAY 1 LONDON – WINCHESTER – DORSET

From London we journey to the Winchester Cathedral before we meet with the sublime Isle of Purbeck, via Corfe Castle. Later, enjoy a welcome dinner together. (D)

DAY 2 DORSET – GUERNSEY

It’s off the coach and all aboard the morning ferry to Guernsey. At St Peter Port, enjoy free time to roam before we meet to explore the Sausmarez Manor where we’re treated to a private tour of this grand establishment. (B)

DAY 3 GUERNSEY – SARK – GUERNSEY

We’re off to a flying start this morning as we ferry over to Sark. Getting about involves a stroll or the ‘toast-rack’ – a tractor-drawn bus – or you could simply hire a bicycle. The day is all yours until our return ferry back to Guernsey and our sit-down dinner together. (B,D)

DAY 4 GUERNSEY

First on the agenda today is a stop at Little Chapel – built entirely out of sea shells before a visit to the German Occupation Museum reveals an extensive collection of rare artefacts steeped in history. After an eventful day filled with history and knowledge, the evening is yours to enjoy at your own pace. (B)

DAY 5 GUERNSEY – JERSEY

Our morning in Guernsey is a relaxed one as we ready ourselves to depart for our next island adventure in Jersey. We get acquainted with St Aubin – a fishing harbour with buckets of charm before returning to Jersey for dinner. (B,D)

DAY 6 JERSEY

Jersey isn’t just about exquisite sea-and-sand views. At La Hougue Bie we discover one of Western Europe’s best-preserved Neolithic sites, with prehistoric mounds and a museum packed with ancient treasures. Then it’s onwards to Mont Orgueil Castle, which has stood watch over Jersey for over 600 years before retiring in Jersey for the night. (B)

DAY 7 JERSEY – ST MALO

Walter Raleigh’s stronghold and Charles II’s refuge – Elizabeth Castle has played a huge role in Jersey’s history. Today we can see its wartime bunkers and the causeway that permits entrance at low tide. Later, we swap Britain for France and sail to the old walled city of St Malo. (B)

DAY 8 ST MALO

St Malo’s labyrinthine streets are best covered on a walking tour – and that’s how we begin today. Marvel at Château de St Malo, once owned by the Dukes of Brittany and now a town museum, and enjoy the rest of the day as you wish. (B)

DAY 9 ST MALO – MONT ST MICHEL – DINAN – ST MALO

It’s time to wind our way along Normandy’s coast to the rocky islet of Mont St Michel. We then explore Dinan by ourselves before coming back together for a taste of classic French cuisine at a traditional restaurant. (B,D)

DAY 10 ST MALO – FOUGÈRES – SAINTE SUZANNE – LAVAL

As one of Europe’s biggest fortresses, Château de Fougères captivates at first sight and we learn about its ups and downs this morning. The afternoon takes us to Sainte Suzanne, one of France’s most beautiful villages. Before we rest our heads in Laval, we indulge in a delicious farewell group dinner. (B,D)

DAY 11 LAVAL – CHARTRES – PARIS

We end our tour with a trip to the Cathedral of Chartres – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most beautifully preserved examples of Gothic architecture. It’s a fitting finale to our travels, which come to a close in Paris. (B)
