More info: email@example.com The final price may be subject to small changes due to currency exchange rates.
Southampton, on the shores of the Solent, is the largest port of England. The bustling town offers plenty of distractions, and is known (sometimes reviled) for its brutalist architecture. However, the city hosts a number of fine museums, the Tudor House, and long stretches of medieval walls. Also, the beautiful English countryside is just a short drive away. The yearly Southampton boat show in september should be on any Windseeker’s calendar. And don’t forget to visit the Isle of Wight!
Fowey is a small port town in Cornwall, in South-West England. Sitting at the mouth of the steep-walled Fowey River valley, Fowey is a cute tourist town, filled with pubs, cottages and an enduring fishing legacy. Walk between castle ruins, coves and caves in the surrounding bays, or go for Fish and Chips alongside the harbour. Every August, the Fowey Regatta brings a plethora of boats to the town, a more peaceful meeting than the with ‘Fowey Gallant’ pirates of the 1400s.
