This tour is perfect to customise, as there are so many great places within reach. To get you started, please find below our suggested itinerary below.
We've included suggested attraction visits (at an extra charge) to make your tour even more memorable, and to cater for those not bowling - why not visit Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, or stay close to home with a visit to the legendary Cathedral?
Please note all attractions and fixtures mentioned are subject to availability.
Day 1. Day of Departure
The executive coach will pick-up from your bowls club (or location of your choice) and proceed to the hotel.
Once you’ve dropped off your bags, head to an afternoon fixture at local Hyde Abbey Bowls Club- only a short drive from the hotel.
Alternatively, spend the afternoon at leisure – perhaps a light lunch, a spot of shopping or a drink at one of the quirky nearby pubs.
Day 2. Southampton and the New Forest
After a hearty breakfast, we head to Beaulieu- noted as one of the prettiest villages in the New Forest. Situated at the head of the tidal Beaulieu River, the village dates back to the 13th century, and is great for a riverside picnic.
In the afternoon, we proceed to Atherley Bowling Club, Southampton- fantastic facilities and the Headquarters for Bowls Hampshire.

Spend the morning at leisure or take in the magnificent cathedral on a guided tour.
Staying local, play an afternoon fixture at Littleton Bowls Club where you are sure to receive a very warm welcome.
