Geo-Trips :: Ronnie Corbett Day

Isle of Wight

A drive from Fishbourne, Thu, 21 Dec 2017 by Basher Eyre

In our family we've always called December 21 Ronnie Corbett Day (ie the shortest) Now I hear its only the 2nd shortest, but I'm too old to change. So we got the car ferry to Fishbourne, drove to Ryde, spent some money in their delightfully old fashioned shops and then onto Old St Helens. After that we lunched on Culver Cliff, drove onto Bonchurch before heading north to Osborne. Nowhere quite like the IOW...
